IACC Young Journalists Initiative 2024

International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) posted 3 weeks ago

Opportunity Description

Young journalists from all over the world who are passionate about combating corruption and who want to investigate, report on, and speak out on social issues pertaining to transparency, integrity, and exposing corruption are being sought after by the 2024 IACC.

Young Journalists who have taken part in the program are invited to join Journalists for Transparency, a group of more than 100 journalists and storytellers who cover corruption and transparency issues worldwide. They also become a part of the YJ Alumni program. J4T can offer small-to-medium sized grants to YJ alumni so they can collaborate and look into particular corruption cases. The initiative aims to empower, encourage, and facilitate young journalists to refine their investigative skills so they can more effectively expose corruption and its detrimental effects on people’s lives.
