About the One world media fellowship

One World Media Fellowship is aimed at aspiring journalists and filmmakers who seek to make a career out of reporting on stories from the global south.

Working in film, print, audio or multimedia, our Fellows’ projects bring together integrity and creativity to present underreported stories that break down stereotypes and build cross-cultural connections.

We guide filmmakers and journalists on a single project, and provide a supportive network of mentors and peers through the production and completion of their project.

We seek to champion diverse emerging talent, and particularly encourage submissions from underrepresented groups (people of colour, ethnic groups, women, LGBTQ+, or people with disabilities) as well as from people from and based in the global south.

Key Dates and Order of Program

  • Open for entries: Weds, 24 February 2021
  • Extended deadline: Weds, 7 April 2021
  • Fellows announced: Late May 2021

In 2021, we will select 20 Fellows. We have 10 spaces for applicants based anywhere in the world, and 10 spaces reserved for applicants from across Africa.

Networking and Partnership Opportunities
