Elizabeth R Media Fund launches digital challenge

Journalists ages 28 to 35 from the Commonwealth of Nations, excluding the United Kingdom, can apply for this program.

The Elizabeth R Broadcasting Fund, relaunched by the Thomson Foundation, aims to provide aspiring media managers from the Commonwealth of Nations with the skills and tools necessary to help their organizations face the digital challenges in their countries.

Applicants must submit a 400-word statement, outlining a challenge posed to their organization or media sector in their country, along with a potential business case for how it could be addressed. Twenty applicants will be chosen to take three online modules in digital skills and newsroom management from the Thomson Foundation’s online Journalism Now program.

The overall winner will spend a week of an intensive study of U.K. media organizations in London, followed by 12 months of online mentoring.

The deadline is Nov. 3.
