Mongabay is inviting journalists to pitch news stories, in-depth features, investigative reports, or other projects to be published on their website in English.
Stories should address the complex choices Africans and African policy-makers must make as the continent continues to grow. Population growth, resource extraction, climate change, and other forces are impacting local wildlife and ecosystems, requiring tough choices.
The story pitch should include a one-sentence focus statement as well as background information, prospective sources, and a proposed delivery date. Applicants should also submit their resume and three clips.
Pitches will be considered on a rolling basis until Sept. 1 or when the project budget is disbursed. Mongabay will negotiate all fees and contracts on a per-story basis. For more information, go to: https://mongabay.org/programs/news/opportunities/special-reporting-project-changing-africa/
