DEADLINE: IJNR Grants for Reporting on Marine Indigenous Protected Areas in Canada

Event Date: 
April 30, 2020

The Institute for Journalism & Natural Resources invites proposals from journalists or news outlets for reporting projects that cover Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs) in Canada, with a particular focus on marine areas. We are looking for ambitious journalistic projects that shed light on this emerging future of conservation, the complicated politics of IPCAs, and how Indigenous communities are leading the way on landscape-level protection. Deadline is Apr 30, 2020.

IJNR, with the support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, will provide grant funding for journalists or news outlets interested in diving deeper into this topic. Grant money may be spent on any costs incurred for normal reporting activities: travel, lodging, research, etc. A portion of the funding may be used for compensation. Proposals may be for up to $15,000 (USD). Please read complete background and guidelines before applying.

Both Indigenous and non-Indigenous journalists are welcome to apply; we strongly encourage proposals for projects/publications/collaborations led by or including Indigenous journalists.
