    Reporting Right Livelihood

     

    A journalism grant scheme to promote impartial and high-quality reporting on the work of ‘Alternative Nobel’ Laureates

     

    About

    With shrinking media budgets around the world, many newsworthy stories on real solutions to global challenges are often missing out on being reported. More than 160 Laureates of the Right Livelihood Award, known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’, provide fertile ground for such stories. In 2017, the Right Livelihood Award Foundation is launching a small grant scheme to support impartial and high-quality reporting on the work of ‘Alternative Nobel’ Laureates and, in doing so, put the spotlight on the issues that matter.

     

    Grants

    A total of five small grants for journalists will be disbursed in 2017. The grants will cover reasonable travel, accommodation and communication costs related to the selected story, as well as a modest honorarium. All successful applicants will be requested to sign a grant agreement prior to disbursement of funds and provide adequate justification for the costs incurred upon the completion of the assignment. Should reporting not take place for reasons other than force majeure, the Foundation reserves the right to revoke the funding.

     

    Deadline

    The deadline for applications is 15 June 2017. The successful applicants will be announced on 1 July 2017. All selected grantees must complete their reports before the end of 2017.

     

    Use of materials

    The journalists retain full editorial control and copyright of the story; the Right Livelihood Award Foundation reserves the right to use all associated materials (photo, video and copy) free of charge in its own communications.

     

    Applicants

    Applicants can be print, online, photo and broadcast journalists (staff or freelance), or journalism students in their final year of studies. Applicants can be based anywhere in the world, however they must produce the report in one of the following languages: Arabic, English, French, German, Hindi, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish or Turkish.

     

    All applicants must complete the application form for consideration by the Steering Committee with an indication of the story angle, the Right Livelihood Laureate(s) to be featured, the media outlet(s) approached for publication, and the indicative budget.

    Steering Committee

    The Steering Committee includes Right Livelihood Award Laureates, as well as senior journalism and media capacity building experts. The Steering Committee’s decision is final. For more info click here
