BudgIT Civic Hive Media Fellowship Program 2020 & How to Apply : BudgIT is now accepting applications from full-time writers, print or broadcast journalists, filmmakers, bloggers, or other media makers for its 2020 Civic Hive Media Fellowship Program. The deadline for submission of applications for the BudgIT Civic Hive Media Fellowship Program is 31st March, 2020.
The BudgIT Media fellowship program started the year 2017, where it featured journalists who were focused on writing human-angle stories that raised advocacy on topics like budget access, project tracking, use of extractive revenues, social justice, anti-corruption, open governments, and transparency.
BudgIT’s platform helped to give voice to the stories and backed stories up with real time data. They are focused on telling stories that will give results to advocacy issues to make the society a better place and create a more egalitarian society that works for all.
This year, the Civic Hive Media fellowship program will be more focused on stories on Gender Inequality, Health, People with special needs, Agriculture, Education, Social Investment programs, civic issues, and the extractive industry. They are looking for stories that will advance and bring attention to transparency, accountability, and civic engagement in these thematic sectors.
They do not mind the scale of the stories – local or international – and they are open to the diverse use of technology – radio, text, print, IoT, machine learning, artificial intelligence or social media – as a channel to disseminate the stories. They are more focused on the impact on the people, the sustainability of ideas to deliver value and the unrelenting spirit of the journalists.
