Deadline: September 12, 2022
Are you a storyteller based in Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao, or Manila? Are you passionate about the environment and climate issues? Do you want to enhance your multimedia production skills? Then this ClimateTracker Digital Content Creators Hub is for you!
The Philippines is facing more and more effects of climate change, from extreme rainfall, natural disasters, to the rising sea level. But stories and ideas about these are not commonly found in daily conversation.
That is why Climate Tracker teamed up with Oxfam International to launch the Digital Content Creators Hub for storytellers across the Philippines! The hub will facilitate multimedia training for storytellers like you to produce more engaging content on the environment and climate change.
During the course of the fellowship, 15 fellows will undergo a fun online training. It will focus on developing skills in climate communications and multimedia production to help them produce their individual stories. Top 8 fellows will then be selected for a three-day bootcamp in Manila, for a more in-depth and individualized training from expert mentors.
This hub has a lot in store! Fellows will benefit from:
- Holistic multimedia training to enhance your content production
- Creative storytelling skills to better engage your audience
- Fun way to understand the environmental topics
- A network of creative like-minded creators in the Philippines
- Turn your ideas into reality with help of mentors and professionals
- Be featured on Climate Tracker social media and the programme microsite
- Establish your profile in the environmental and climate stories
- Open storytellers in the Philippines.
- You can be an early-career journalist, or you can be an artist, cartoonist, illustrator, photographer, videographer, filmmaker, writer, or content creator.
- If you are 18-35 years old, have an early career as a journalist or have a solid portfolio as a storyteller, content creator, or artist, and have an interest in making content about the environment, you are eligible.
During the selection process, you will also be asked to submit new digital content. It will be about the environment or climate change you have made and published in your own channels.
The final selections will be based on:
- The value and interest of your submissions
- Your interest and potential to learn and collaborate throughout the fellowship initiative.
- The uniqueness of your approach
- Your experience as a journalist, storyteller, content creator, or artist
You will submit a short story pitch that you will produce during the programme. Your pitch needs to include:
- Working title
- Story summary (max 200 words)
- Content format and length – what type of content you will make, how long do you think the story will be?
- Links to stories/contents you’ve published before
- A link to your CV
