BIRN Macedonia Launches Tenth Call for Investigative Reports

Posted on

BIRN Macedonia, together with the Centre for Civil Communications, launched the tenth call for investigative stories on February 29th.

The call is part of the ‘Project for Investigative Journalism and Cooperation Between Media and Civil Society’, and is part of a USAID programme for strengthening independent media in Macedonia.

Selected journalists will be awarded a grant covering their expenses during the investigation and writing phases of their stories. This call ends on October 28th.

Journalists will have approximately three months to dig deeper and research investigative story ideas. Grantees will be mentored by experienced editors who will guide them through the process of writing investigative stories according to BIRN standards.

Topics for investigations include: health; cultural policy; education and youth; human rights; EU integration; good governance; inter-ethnic relations; environment issues; marginalised groups; quality of life.

The call only applies to journalists from Macedonia.

The final call for investigative reports within this project will be launched at the end of 2016.
