World Health Organization calls applications for WHO Road Safety Reporting Contest 2021. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) are conducting a WHO Road Safety reporting contest to raise awareness and spur dialogue around critical – yet underreported – road safety issues with a Vision Zero/Safe System Approach.
Underreported issues include road design and quality, unsafe and polluting used vehicles, cost and extent of crash-related injuries, air pollution due to exhaust emissions, safe public transport urban cycling. Multimedia stories, podcasts, photo reportage, cross-border stories, and series of stories are welcome. Collaboration within newsrooms or across borders, use of social media and audience feedback, post-story engagement with policy- and decision-makers, and other ways of maximizing the impact of the reporting are highly encouraged.
ICFJ will provide 30 collaborative reporting grants between $500 and $1,500 upon the conclusion of the virtual workshops and submission of a story proposal/budget. These grants will support teams of two or more journalists (only one of them must be a virtual workshop participant) working together to produce in-depth, join reporting projects around underreported road safety issues that will be identified during the virtual workshops. Grants will support stories with a firm commitment for publication from a media house/editor/newsroom chief; publications on personal websites will not be considered.
In oder to enter, applicants must send the link of their story to [email protected] by December 1, 2021.
