Countering misinformation through verification-based reporting
The Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) in collaboration with the Addu Women’s Association (AWA) calls for applications from Maldivian journalists to counter misinformation through verification-based storytelling.
Applicants are required to duly fill the online application form and upload two samples of in depth reports/or add story links in support of the application.
The selected 15 journalists will undergo a short orientation program and will be supported by a panel of senior mentors from Sri Lanka and Maldives in the development of their stories.
Selected journalists are required to publish at least one fact-checked story within a specified time.
Women journalists are strongly encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates shall apply online on or before 20 January 2021.
Only those selected will be contacted.
This initiative is supported by the High Commission of Canada to Sri Lanka and Maldives under the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).
