At the African Investigative Journalism Conference we will provide courses in a range of skills: how to do a financial investigation, how to research the Panama Papers, multimedia storytelling, tools to secure your emails, how to collaborate across borders with African colleagues, undercover reporting, reporting with your mobile phone and lots of data journalism. There will also be time to get to know your fellow investigative journalists from around the continent.
The conference will be conducted in English and there will be no translation. The bursary will cover flights to South Africa, airport transfers, accommodation in single rooms, transport to and from the conference, meals and conference fees. It does not cover home-country transport or visa costs, which must be self-funded. In country transports costs for personal trips and charges for incidentals at the place of accommodation is also excluded and will be for your personal account.
Please also let us know if you have attended the conference before and in which year. If you are a beginning journalist and want to attend, tell us which investigate story you are planning to work on with the skills you will gain.
If you have worked on an investigation the past year and would like to present this story, please also include information on that project.
