African Investigative Journalism Conference Fellowships

The work of investigative journalists is too important to slow down during a pandemic. And the role of the African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC2020) in highlighting and boosting African investigative reporting is too vital to stop.

African Investigative Journalism Conference will be a virtual gathering, a series of online events spread over the month of October. There will be a full and rich programme and many opportunities to engage with colleagues, network with the best on the continent, share your work, and learn about what is happening on the cutting edge of in-depth reporting and data journalism tools and techniques.

African Investigative Journalism Conference Call for Fellowships

African Investigative Journalism Conference is offering 100 fellowships to journalists to participate in the conference, which takes place this year as a series of online events in the period October 6 – 30. With 30+ sessions and 50+ speakers, it is a rare opportunity to share, network, learn and train alongside some of the continent’s best journalists.

Fellows will get entry to all events and a data allocation to enable them to attend.

Fellows will be required to produce a story for the conference newsroom and  for publication in their home country based on learnings from the conference.

To apply, fill in this form before September 18. Successful applicants will be notified by email by September 30, 2020

Ian Parry Scholarship Prize 2021 For Young Photo Journalists

Ian Parry was a photojournalist who died while on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989. He was just 24 years of age. Aidan Sullivan, then picture editor, and Ian’s friends and family created the Ian Parry Scholarship in order to build something positive from such a tragic death. Each year we hold an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.

The Ian Parry Scholarship is divided into two categories: The Sunday Times Award for Achievement and The Canon Award for Potential.

The entry criteria for both is the same and the judges will make their decisions based on the individual merits of the entries. Entrants must submit a portfolio and a clear proposal of a project they would undertake if they won the scholarship.

Benefits

Benefits include:

Each winner will receive $3,500 towards their chosen project.

Canon Europe continues to support the Scholarship and loans equipment to the winners.

Attend a portfolio review day with leading industry experts in London (covid permitting).

Mentorship Programme, we offer a year-long personal Mentorship to the winner of The Canon Award for Potential.

Both winners will have the opportunity to take part in the Transmissions Programme at Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan.

World Press Photo, automatically accepts the winner of the Achievement Award into its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam.
