GRANTS TO ATTEND 2008 GLOBAL INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM CONFERENCE

Investigative journalists from Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America are welcome to apply for grants to cover their travel and stay at the 2008 Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Lillehammer, Norway, on 11-14 September.

Between 400 and 500 of the world's best investigative reporters are expected to attend the conference, whose main focus will be on journalistic work methods, from how to balance patience with deadlines to effective ways of getting in touch with sources.

Journalists who are willing to show and share their experiences and work through presentations at the conference are especially welcome to apply for a grant.

The conference is funded by Norway's Foreign Ministry and the Norwegian Foundation for Investigative Journalism (SKUP).

To apply, email your CV, a summary of your work in investigative journalism, and personal references, particularly if they are from national or international journalism NGOs, to: gijc2008(@)gmail(.)com

Conference organisers hope to have selected all recipients by the end of April 2008 to ensure enough time for visa applications.
