The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) invites journalists to submit their stories for the 2016 Global Health Reporting Contest.
ICFJ with the support of Johnson & Johnson, will recognize the best media coverage of maternal and child health and other key health issues from each region. ICFJ’s 2016 Global Health Reporting Contest aims to build on the program’s previous years’ successes by catalyzing local networks of leading health reporters in Brazil, China, India, Russia, and sub-Saharan Africa. One winner from each region will be selected.
This year, the program will feature country-and region-specific webinars to allow contest winners to continue the conversation and solidify their local networks of health reporters.
Journalists in the targeted countries have the opportunity to participate in a 12-day study tour in the United States and receive cash prizes as part of regional competitions to recognize high quality coverage of maternal and child health, as well as other urgent health matters such as Ebola and vaccinations.
