Reporting ASEAN Media Fellowship
IN CELEBRATION of its 50th founding year in 2017, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is inviting mid-career journalists to submit in-depth stories to the Reporting ASEAN Fellowship Program.
Hosted by Probe Media Foundation, Inc., the program aims to explain to ASEAN citizens “the impact and implications, as well as the challenges and dividends, of regional integration.” Reporting ASEAN is supported by an ASEAN-Canada project and funded by the government of Canada.
Interested applicants must have a deep understanding of the ASEAN community and be able to interpret policy as part of everyday issues. Selected fellows will receive grants to carry out reportage of their approved proposals within two months (during which they continue their regular work duties), and a scholarship to take part in the Reporting ASEAN Media Forum to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from December 2 to 4 this year.
Print media journalists must write a package of stories totaling at least 2,500 words. Photojournalists must create photo essays composed of 15 photos with accompanying text of up to 800 words, while broadcast journalists from radio or television must produce audio or video reports (minimum of 3 and maximum of 15 minutes).
