Deadline: August 4, 2022
Applications are open for the second cohort of the ADH Community Journalism Fellowship (ACJF) 2022. This initiative aims to improve the coverage of under-reported issues in local communities across Nigeria, paying special attention to potential solutions with lasting impact towards effective public service delivery, grassroot development and improving the quality of life.
The Africa Data Hub (ADH) project is a reputable and up-to-date source for COVID-19 related data on the African continent. It supports and promotes quality access to information, data-driven journalism to facilitate evidence-based decision-making about the pandemic across the continent. The ADH Community Journalism Fellowship (ACJF) is an initiative of Orodata Science whose mission is to continue to democratize data, and knowledge towards solutions that impact the lives of millions.
- The fellows will participate in a Data Journalism Bootcamp that will provide capacity-building training on advanced investigative, data storytelling, mapping techniques and community project tracking. Journalists will also learn how to source, analyze and visualize data in engaging and compelling ways.
- The fellowship will provide a grant sum for each fellow to support their investigations.
- The fellows will also receive advisory from mentors to improve their journalistic skills and access to the entire ADH Community.
- The fellowship will provide editorial and technical support such as data research and analysis, data visualizations, infographics, and mapping for the stories produced by the fellows.
- Applicants must be journalists based in Nigeria.
- Pitches must meet the selected theme.
- Pitches from freelance reporters and staff from all types of media organizations – international, national, local and community-based are encouraged to apply.
The number of grants available is limited, therefore the first 10 – 20 pitches received will stand the best chance of being considered.
