 The IWMF is now accepting applications for a Reporting Fellowships to Zanzibar, Tanzania to take place in August 2017. 

Application Deadline: 19th May 2017

Offered annually? Yes

Eligible Countries: All

About the Award: As part of the African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative, a group of six journalists will report from Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous island off the east coast of mainland Tanzania, covering stories related to the trip theme of civic engagement.

Applicants are asked to pitch stories relevant to the trip location and theme; stories must focus on in-depth and new narratives and be notably different from those reported on previous Fellowships. We will prioritize applications with creative, thoughtful, and original pitches.

To date, 91 journalists from 23 countries have pursued a wide range of topics that go beyond the well-established beats of political instability, armed conflict, and humanitarian crisis in the region.

During the next two years, the IWMF will continue to lead groups of women journalists to the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. By 2019, more than 250 reporters will have together reshaped traditional media narratives around the region.

  • Applicants must be able to show proof of interest from an editor or have a proven track record of publication in prominent media outlets (a letter from an editor is strongly preferred).

The IWMF also covers Fellowship-related costs within the framework of the reporting trip including travel, lodging, meals, and fixers/interpreters, unless a selected journalist’s news organization wishes to assume these costs.
