Winners in the latest round of the Innovation in Development Reporting Grant Programme attended a two-day boot camp in Maastricht, the Netherlands, to share their stories and learn about best practices in development journalism.
The fifteen new grantees, hailing from all over the world, presented their prospective projects on development issues to both fellow journalists and editors.
The four editors attended the boot camp on behalf of their outlets De Correspondent (the Netherlands), Dagens Nyheter (Sweden), Spiegel Online and WeltN24 (Germany) respectively – all winners of the Special Edition Round for Media Outlets that ran parallel to the call for journalists.
This mix of journalists and editors provided for fruitful discussions on topics like selling your story, working on multimedia collaborations and digital security. What were the key takeaways? A summary of the intense yet rewarding two days can now be found on Storify.
The EJC would like to thank all new grantees for the inspiring boot camp!
