The Constructive Journalism Lab offers a fellowship for media professionals from the Middle East and Africa. Apply now!
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the lives of people all over the world. The media has been playing a vital role in providing reliable information throughout the crisis. But it can do much more. It has great potential to point to solutions and possible ways forward. For the first time, DW Akademie offers a Constructive Journalism Fellowship for TV, multimedia and video journalists, photographers and documentary filmmakers from the MENA region and Africa. It is a four-month fellowship which will bring together 15 talented media professionals who want to learn more about constructive storytelling and connect with like-minded professionals.
Applications are open until July 15, 12 am CET.
Who can apply?
Country of residence: Applicants should be residents of a country in the MENA region or Africa.
Language: English will be the language of the trainings and overall communication. Applicants should therefore have a command of English corresponding at least to the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. The visual projects of the fellows can also be carried out in a different language if applicable.
Work experience: All applicants should have experience producing visual content and must be able to handle their equipment and work relatively independently. (For the visual project you may collaborate with others or hire assistance but please calculate for this within the budget.) There is no need for previous experience in constructive journalism.
Equipment: All participants need to have access to the technical equipment they need for the constructive visual project (e.g., cameras, microphones, editing software) and a computer to participate in the online workshop.
