Interested journalists can apply by sending the following to Willie Shubert at email@example.com and Jim Detjen at firstname.lastname@example.org, and making sure the words Seafood Summit are in the subject line:
- A copy of your CV and bio, describing your background in journalism and current media affiliation;
- A letter of support signed by your editor/producer/supervisor acknowledging that you can participate in the Fellowship program, that you can attend the entire program arriving on Sept 4th and departing on Sept 12th and that your stories will be published or aired by the media organization;
- Two samples of your journalism work;
- A 500-word explanation of why you’d like to participate in the Fellowship program.
The initial deadline for applying is July 15th. Since time is short, frankly, the earlier you can apply, the better your chances of going.
If you are a Chinese journalist and interested in applying, please do so. Freelance journalists are also welcome to apply so long as they can provide the signed letter of support from an editor/producer/supervisor. Criteria for selection include the size and reach of a media organization’s audience, the quality of an applicant’s journalism work, and the demonstrated interest of an applicant in reporting on marine fisheries issues.
