EJN offers grants for stories on high seas

DEADLINE: MARCH 21 2022 — The Earth Journalism Network (EJN) is offering reporting grants to journalists worldwide for the production of in-depth stories on the high seas.

With support from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, EJN will offer up to 10 story grants with an average budget of $1200 to selected journalists.

EJN welcomes story ideas that focus on the high seas – their importance and connection to climate change, biodiversity and other global issues;  the threats they face; and ongoing efforts to protect and manage these areas.

Journalists working in any medium (online, print, television, radio) and other expert media practitioners with professional reporting experience can apply.

Stories can be produced in any language. However, stories in local languages must include an English translation.

The deadline for applications is March 21, 2022.
