The IJW plans to conduct a series of three day workshops between now and the 2nd investigative journalism conference due to take place from June 5-7 in Johannesburg. The workshops will:
a. focus on key areas of concern at local government and service delivery level and will offer project based training
b. build on each other
c. take place on March 27-29 with workshops 2 and 3 to take place on April 24-26 and MayÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â 15-16 according to present planning.
A written commitment to attend all three workshops will be a prerequisite for an invitation to participate.
For efficacy reasons we will limit participation to a maximum of 10 investigative reporters. Participants will:
have to commit to taking part in every single one of the workshops
be expected to deliver progress reports and ultimately write at least one story based on their investigations
be requested to present their experiences as case studies at the June conference
The first workshop is due to take place in Johannesburg from March 27-29. Deadline for applications has been extended to March 22, 9am. We shall select on the basis of the applicantÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s portfolio, commitment and editorial support. So please supply with your application:
a written commitment to attend all three workshops
a letter of support from you editor
The workshop fee is R300. Full bursaries including transport and accommodation can be applied for. For a detailed programme, go to the programme link.
