The National Geographic Society has launched an emergency fund for journalists all over the world who wish to cover COVID-19 within their own communities.
This fund will place particular emphasis on delivering news to underserved populations, particularly where there is a dearth of evidence-based information getting to those who need it.
The National Geographic Society is interested in local and even hyper-local distribution models.
This fund is designed to quickly deliver support so that both individual stories and longer series of content may be created.
Beyond reporting on medical and physical health related to COVID-19, they especially encourage reporting that covers social, emotional, economic, and equity issues.
Narratives around the Pandemic necessarily include facts and numbers, but ultimately, must also go deeper—telling the stories of inequities that COVID-19 has brought to light.
Reporting may cover any aspect of the virus and its fallout, including but not limited to:
Priority communities include: Those at high risk or hit especially hard by the virus, indigenous communities, immigrant or refugee communities, underserved, urban, rural, elderly populations, and children.
The fund will distribute support ranging from $1,000–8,000 USD for local coverage of the preparation, response, and impact of this global pandemic as seen through evidence-based reporting.
National Geographic Society asks that applicants estimate their standard fee for reporting on or creating such content.
Applications Accepted All Year Round!
