APPLY || LATEST One World Media Fellowship for Aspiring Journalists & Filmmakers (2022/23)

Deadline: March 29, 2022

Applications for the One World Media Fellowship 2022 are now being accepted. With the One World Media Fellowship, aspiring journalists and filmmakers who want to make a career out of reporting on issues affecting people in the global south can receive financial assistance.

Fellows’ projects, whether in film, print, audio, or multimedia, bring together integrity and imagination to tell underreported stories that challenge stereotypes and foster cross-cultural understanding. In addition to guiding filmmakers and journalists through a single project, they also provide a supportive network of mentors and peers to help them through the entire production and completion process.

People from underrepresented groups (people of color, ethnic groups, women, LGBTQ+, or people with disabilities) as well as people from and based in the global south are particularly encouraged to submit their work to the competition.

Benefits

  • £1,000 production grant
  • Executive Producer for your project
  • Career mentorship
  • Workshops and webinars by industry experts
  • Fair Reporting and Security Guidance
  • Introductions to commissioners
  • Network of like-minded Fellows and Alumni

Eligibility

  • They are open to applications from all around the world.
  • One World Media Fellows are aspiring filmmakers and journalists ready to take the next leap in their career reporting from the global south. Looking for their first director role or solo investigation, their Fellows experiment and learn in a supportive environment. In 2022, they will select 12 international Fellows.

Eligible Projects

  • Projects in pre-production that tell engaging stories from low- and middle-income countries across the global south
  • Non-fiction media across all platforms: film, print, audio, photojournalism, and multimedia
  • Proposals where majority of the budget is in place or achievable in a short time-frame
  • Projects that can be delivered within a year – for films this is under 30 mins
  • Stories that are strong enough to be published or broadcast in established media outlets. They are looking for genuine journalism or documentary and will fund media that could ultimately appear in existing newspapers, magazines, radio, TV channels, professional news websites and online platforms, etc.

Beyond this, they are particularly interested in proposals that:

  • Seek to tell original stories in a way that will engage the intended audience
  • Highlight the voices of people living in the global south, particularly voices that are not often heard
  • Have established contacts and contributors who have confirmed their willingness to take part
  • Have considered ethical issues and safety
  • Do not simply cover negative aspects of the global south without considering the context in which they exist
  • Demonstrate an understanding of accountability and fair practice in news gathering and reporting
  • Show a willingness to work with local people in equal partnership in co-production on a story

Application

Applications are shortlisted in house then put to a jury panel of industry professionals who select the winning applications. The new Fellows are announced in May.
