DPRI Media Fellowship program for ‘humane’ drug policies now accepting applicants  

A group of advocates seeking to advance humane drug policies in the country is now opening a media fellowship for Filipino journalists interested to cover drugs and drug policy reforms in the Philippines.
Drug Policy Reform Initiative (DPRI), will hold the “Putting People First—Media Fellowship for Humane Drug Policy” with the aim of helping shape conversations surrounding drugs and drug use towards compassion and empowerment.
The journalism fellowship is open to media practitioners who wish to strengthen their skills and knowledge when covering drug-related stories.
The call for stories opened last March 20 and is ongoing until March 29, 2023. It is open to all Filipino editors, reporters, photojournalists, anchors and news managers based in the Philippines. The Fellowship will run from April to May 2023. 
Interested applicants should submit their application through www.tinyurl.com/DPRIFellowship with their latest curriculum vitae and proposed story to be pursued. 
Twenty (20) successful applicants will be given a seed grant that ranges from P15,000 to P30,000 for the data-gathering and publishing of work.  
Fellows will also receive training, coaching, and feedback sessions with their peers and advocates.  The full mechanics of the Media Fellowship are available at: https://tinyurl.com/DPRIFellowshipMechanics.
