Submit your application in English or Russian using the following
questionnaire until April 16th, 2017: https://goo.gl/forms/XgayfTSc7s3TcjsC3

We will select the teams and stories in a two-step procedure:

1. Shortlist: The jury will choose ca. 15 stories. Your story is one of
them? That means you will have one month from now to get the
investigation started and find more details in order to convince the
jury that your investigation will be a success.

2. Final selection: The jury will choose up to 9 stories to be funded.

If you are among those journalists who passed the final selection, you
will become member of the n-vestigatenetwork, which involves media
lawyers, Freedom of Information experts, social media activists, media
representatives and investigative journalists. The network provides
consultation & help in all phases of your investigation. Your
investigation will be supervisedby a distinguished investigativejournalist.

n-vestigateoffers financial supportfor your research expenses and fair
honoraria (altogether up to 2.500 Euro per team) as well as support for
visualization, translation and legal screening. You can also receive
extra support for meeting with your team colleagues in order to get your
team collaboration started.

Our understanding of the investigative process goes beyond the
publicationitself. Investigative stories matter for society, so they
need to be read. That’s why we put emphasis on storytelling and

Some of the investigative stories are going to be part of a larger
advocacy campaignin cooperation with NGOs, social media activists, etc.
If your story gets selected for campaigning, we will pitch it to NGOs,
that might start parallel research and campaign planning. This part is
not a mandatory element of the n-vestigate program.

In October your team will be invited to the obligatoryn-vestigateAnnual
Meetingin Odessa. Here you willmeet the other members of the n-vestigate
network. Parts of the event will be just among the group of reporters;
here you will create a visualization for your story and work on
storytelling and publication strategies. In the framework of the Annual
Meeting of our network we provide tailor-made workshopsto improve your
project. Those teams whose stories are part of advocacy campaigns will
meet with the campaigners. Other parts of the meeting will be devoted to
collaboration & discussion with other experts of the network.

We expect journalists to attend the Annual Meeting and cooperate
actively within the n-vestigatenetwork throughout the year.

n-vestigatejournalists are eligible to get support for individual
international networking(participation in international events related
to investigative journalism, i.e. conferences, trainings, etc.).
