Index on Censorship is now accepting applications for a fellowship that seeks to increase the impact and sustainability of voices that are fighting censorship.
The Freedom of Expression Awards Fellowship program offers 12 months of support to individuals or organizations. Fellows receive assistance throughout the year, beginning with a training week in London. The fellowship is an opportunity to build new skills and to network with other journalists.
The application asks nominees to describe challenges to freedom of expression in their area and ways they are improving freedom of expression. Nominees should also submit a piece of work that shows a significant contribution to freedom of expression from the past 12 months.
One fellow each will be accepted from four categories: arts, activism, digital activism, and journalism.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 17.
