Call for Applications: Nigeria Health Watch Collaborative Solutions Journalism Grant 2023 |up to N1,000,000

The Nigeria Health Watch Collaborative Solutions Journalism Grant 2023 is now accepting applications. This funding is available to newsrooms, journalists, and freelancers who are knowledgeable about Solutions Journalism and can work together to submit initiatives and stories.

Solutions journalism is a style of reporting that provides rigorous, investigative, and evidence-based stories on how various societal problems are being addressed. Unlike problem-focused reporting, Solutions Journalism focuses on how people are solving similar issues in multiple regions, allowing for peer learning. The funding encourages media outlets, journalists, freelancers, and all types of storytellers to pitch Solutions Journalism stories or initiatives as a group.

Nigeria Health Watch Collaborative Solutions Grant

  • The grant provides mini-grants, up to N1,000,000, to support five successful submissions.

Nigeria Health Watch Collaborative Solutions Eligibility

  • Open to journalists and media organisations in Nigeria, including print, online, and broadcast media that have a good grasp of Solutions Journalism and have already published Solutions Journalism stories. Having stories indexed in the Solutions Journalism tracker is an advantage.
  • A team of freelance journalists interested in collaborating on a Solutions Journalism story can also apply.
  • Newsrooms/media outlets can collaborate with each other to apply.

Nigeria Health Watch Collaborative Solutions Other Criteria

  • The grant is looking for teams of journalists/freelancers or newsrooms interested in investigating responses that are addressing various sustainable development goals in different locations. For example, if a team is interested in looking at how the problem of WASH in health facilities is being addressed, they will investigate this from two locations and compare what’s working or not working. They can proceed to publish their findings using the Solutions Journalism pillars.
  • The team should be able to collaborate and publish a minimum of three story series from their investigations. The story series can take multiple formats – audio, text, video, photodocumentary, or a combination of different formats.
  • The team must commit to delivering all outputs within the project period (eight weeks) and participate in weekly check-ins and progress calls as part of the mentoring provided to help them complete their deliverables.
  • If working as a team of journalists, they must have access to publish their stories in a reputable online platform (a letter of intent to publish from an editor will be an added advantage).
