BIRN Albania Launches Call for Investigative Reports on Energy

Posted on

The Balkan Investigative Reporting Network in Albania launched a call for investigative stories on energy themes on February 25.

The call is part of the programme on the transparency of the energy sector in Albania, supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

Five journalists will be awarded grants to cover their expenses while doing their investigations and writing their stories on corruption and wrongdoing in the energy sector, with a particular focus on the impact of energy projects on the environment.

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

The call only applies to journalists from Albania. It closes on March 15.
