DEADLINE: JANUARY 30, 2021 — The Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism (WSCIJ) is accepting story pitches from Nigerian journalists from all genres of the media.
Applicants must be interested in investigating the intersection between COVID-19, access to information, and misinformation.
The call is part of the WSCIJ’s ‘Free to share’ initiative which is geared at broadening the scope of freedom of expression through engagements on media ethics and accountability journalism.
The project is implemented in partnership with Free Press Unlimited (FPU) as part of the ‘COVID-19 response in Africa: Together for reliable information project’, funded by the European Union (EU).
The published investigative stories will support the media to better provide access to information that informs, educates, and debunks misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic and its multifaceted impact on lives and livelihoods.
WSCIJ will train and mentor selected reporters virtually towards delivering the stories.
Successful applicants must attend the training fully and be available for mentorship.
The deadline for applications is January 30, 2021.
