Earth Journalism Network – Climate Communications Innovation Fund 2015 (Up to $10,000)
Deadline: June 15, 2015
The Earth Journalism Network invites applications for the 2015 Climate Communications Innovation Fund. They have created the Fund to support the development, adaptation, and introduction of novel story telling methods focused on the human dimensions of climate change. This grant opportunity represents a challenge to journalists throughout the world to facilitate a responsive information ecosystem that more accurately and holistically reflects environmental challenges facing people across the planet.
This grant fund will support up to 5 projects with each grant amount averaging for approximately 10,000 USD. They can provide funding over the average for projects that demonstrates a critical need.
The primary focus of this grant opportunity is on the application of technology and novel techniques for climate change communication. However, applications that include fellowships and travel grants that support specific story ideas or coverage of key events are welcome, so long as these activities have a clear relationship to the innovative components of the project.
Content production is an important aspect of any project but applications without an innovation component will not be considered.
- The Climate Communications Innovation Fund is designed primarily to support the work of already existing media outlets, journalism networks, and associations where an additional funding is need to pursue innovative or experimental approaches.
- Individuals or new ventures are eligible for this funding. Applicants should provide information about sustaining this project after the initial seed funding provided under this grant.
- As Internews is strictly a media development organization, please avoid any applications rooted in advocacy or political campaigning.
