DEADLINE: Unbias the News

Event Date: 
April 18, 2021
  • Do you rarely see people who share your lived experiences reflected in the media?
  • Have your stories not reached their target audience due to structural barriers?
  • Has a lack of privilege or access stopped you from telling important stories
  • Are you concerned about representation and equity in the newsroom?

Unbias the News is a new, remote cross-border newsroom dedicated to showcasing international journalism that breaks through geographical or structural barriers. We are inviting journalists from all over the world to pitch us underreported stories with global relevance.

All applicants will have the opportunity to take part in free digital journalism trainings and peer-to-peer networking, regardless of whether their story pitch was accepted. Accepted submissions will be paid either 250 euros (personal narratives, op-eds, and shorter pieces) or 500 euros (long reads, multimedia, and investigations). Collaborative projects are welcome. We continue to fundraise to enable larger investigations. Deadline: April 18, 2021.
