Investigative Journalism Conference

Investigative journalists from the former USSR, Eastern Europe, Balkans, Caucasus, Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America are now welcome to apply for grants that will cover their travel and stay at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference 2010 at Geneva, Switzerland.

The organizers are particularly looking for journalists who are willing to show and share their experiences and work through presentations at the conference. If you are able to demonstrate how you worked with your life's best investigative story, you might pick up free tickets and stay at the conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
The main focus during seminars will be journalistic work methods, how journalists are using their skills, patience, eagerness to dig up dirt and neat techniques to get in touch with sources, better research material and in the end, good stories that make a difference. The conference will also cover how difficult it is to perform investigative journalism in certain parts of the world.

GIJC 2010 is going to be a unique place to do networking and get to know your own global contact network. 

To apply, supply the application with your CV, a short summary of your work in the field of investigative journalism and personal references. It will also help the organizers if you can get references from organizations working with investigative journalism.

The final application deadline is 31st January, and the applications will be evaluated as they come in.

Please send your questions and applications to contact@gijc2010.ch. Website: http://www.gijc2010.ch/en.
