The DICE Young Storymakers programme is a partnership between the British Council, offered through its Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE) programme and Pioneers Post.

The selected young journalists, videographers, writers, radio journalists or photojournalists – three from each of the following countries: Brazil, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Africa and the UK – will be invited to visit London in May 2019 to receive training from UK journalists and editors and take part in social enterprise and investment events. They will then take part in editorial meetings and produce articles, video, podcasts, photo essays and other paid content for publication in Pioneers Post and British Council channels. They will also be supported in pitching content to other media.

The programme will support the Storymakers to develop and publish fact-based reporting, analysis, radio reporting, photojournalism and video content about:

  • The DICE programme, its participants, partners, beneficiaries, and impact
  • Initiatives to address gender inequality, youth unemployment, and barriers to inclusion for people with disabilities and marginalized populations
  • Efforts to promote a more enabling environment for creative and social enterprise
  • Positive change to national and regional policies for creative and social enterprises
  • Innovative, collaborative responses to local and global challenges targeted by the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Other efforts to build more creative and inclusive economies

These opportunities will be offered to three young journalists, videographers, photojournalists, radio journalists or writers, aged 18-25, in each of these DICE countries: Brazil, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Africa and the UK.


The selected Storymakers will be invited for a fully-funded trip to London from 18-24 May to take part in a training workshop.

Additionally, Storymakers will benefit from the following ongoing support from Pioneers Post and the British Council, including:

  • Monthly editorial calls/meetings with Pioneers Post editors, providing regular advice and support on story planning and editing
  • The opportunity to have work published on Pioneers Post and/or British Council channels
  • Mentoring opportunities with an in-country, professional journalist

The Young Storymakers will also receive compensation for content that is published on Pioneers Post or British Council channels – articles, photo essays, podcast, and video – along with expenses contributions, paid through Pioneers Post at a pre-agreed rate.

Further, they will engage in active learning and participate in storytelling opportunities with UK media and social enterprise professionals. They will also be invited to attend the Good Deals & Beyond Good Business conference and take part in other DICE activities along with the DICE Collaborators, members of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment, UK-based creative and social entrepreneurs, and British Council staff. Throughout, they will be expected to post about their experiences on social media and produce at least one piece of storytelling (e.g. article, video, audio journalism, etc.) from their trip to London about a DICE-related theme, collaborator, event or more, with support from Pioneers Post editors and programme leaders.

After their return from London, the DICE Young Storymakers will be expected to each produce at least three additional articles (800-1,200 words), photo essays (10 images) or short videos (of 3 minutes or less) over the following ten months (to the end of March 2020).  Longer articles will also be considered.
