DW Akademie is accepting applications for its Constructive Journalism Fellowship.
The program brings together media professionals who want to learn more about constructive storytelling and connect with like-minded colleagues.
The fellowship includes online training that will be held between November 2022 and February 2023.
Broadcast journalists residing in a Sub-Saharan African country can participate in this fellowship.
In addition, fellows will participate in a one-week on-site session in March 2023 that will take place either in Germany or on the Sub-Saharan African continent.
Selected fellows will receive up to EUR3,000 for their video production of a constructive visual project.
The organisers said, “The past two years have shown that global crises, such as climate change and the pandemic, have directly affected our local everyday lives”.
“Negative media coverage has also had a severe impact worldwide, causing many people to turn away from media.”
The deadline for the submission of the application is July 31, 2022. Interested applicants can apply here.
