University Of Oxford Reuters Institute News Trust Fellowship

Applications are open for the University of Oxford Reuters Institute News Trust Fellowship 2021. The Fellowships are granted to mid-career journalists from India, Brazil, the UK or the US, who have ideas for ways to enhance trust in the news media.

Your idea might be something new you wish to implement in your newsroom when you return, or it may be a new initiative you’d like to launch. The successful applicants will join the Journalism Fellowship at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University for six months, starting in January 2021. This means you will have access to Oxford libraries, the full wealth of research data and specialists at the Reuters Institute, and a cohort of top journalists from around the world with whom you can share and develop your ideas.

Benefits

  • Fellows will be given a stipend to cover food and accommodation, and will be able to spend time researching, developing and testing their idea before presenting and publishing their findings.
  • Your travel to Oxford and back home will be covered, and they will provide support in the visa process.

Eligibility

  • Open to journalists from United States of America, United Kingdom, India and Brazil;
  • They should have at least 5 years of experience;
  • Have an idea to improve trust in news.

Application

Applications should include:

  • A 600-word summary of the idea you believe will enhance trust in the news media.
  • A 2- to 3-page CV including contact details for three references, and links to recent work.
  • A one-page statement explaining who you are and why you would like to join them.

These can be submitted in PDF, Word, or Rich Text Format. Applications must reach them by 08.00 GMT on September 28th, but early submission is encouraged to give them more time to consider your idea. The successful applicants will be informed in early October.

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.

Your work will appear in The Sunday Times Magazine, our media sponsor.
