Posted on

Following a roundtable discussion between civil society organisations about consumer protection, the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania (BIRN Albania) is opening a call for investigative stories.

BIRN Albania

The call is part of the project ‘Exposing Corruption in Albania’, supported by the Open Society Foundation in Albania, OSFA.

Three journalists will be awarded grants to cover their expenses while doing investigations and writing stories on a wide range of consumer protection topics which emerged from a roundtable discussion between journalists and civil society on September 20, 2017 in Tirana.

The journalists will have about three months to dig deeper and research their ideas, and will also have the opportunity to work with experienced editors as mentors to guide them through the process of writing to BIRN’s standards.

The call only applies to journalists from Albania and closed on October 15, 2017.
