The Logan Non-fiction Programme is accepting applications from around the world for the fall 2020 fellowship, which will run from October to December at the Carey Institute for Global Good in  New York, in the United States.

The fellowship is open for Journalists, documentary filmmakers, photographers, and podcasters and multimedia producers working on long-form, deeply reported nonfiction projects.

The fellowship seeks to support democracy by advancing independent journalistic inquiry and investigation. It accepts applications from nonfiction writers, photojournalists, documentary filmmakers, podcasters and radio reporters, and multimedia creators. Applications are also accepted from academics and non-professional journalists, as long as the intended audience of the project is the general public.

The Logan Nonfiction Programme believes that an informed, educated and engaged citizenry is essential to the functioning of a democratic society.

It understands that society relies on journalists to filter misinformation, ensure transparency and provide accurate and unbiased content. Yet journalists are required to work with fewer resources, tighter deadlines and more pressure than ever before.

With support from the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation, the Logan Nonfiction Programme aims to fill the growing gap in the media landscape between the resources a news outlet, book publisher or film distributor can devote to long-form narratives, and the resources a journalist, author or documentary filmmaker needs.

Fellowships range between 5-10 weeks and take place on the Carey Institute for Global Good’s historic 100-acre campus in upstate New York.

The fellowship is particularly interested in supporting projects that examine the most pressing issues of the day, including but not limited to: conflict and security; democracy and governance; education; environment and climate change; food security; gender, race, sexual orientation, disability and intersectionality; globalization; health; inequality and exclusion; media and journalism; social justice; and sustainability and resilience.

The fellowship allows small groups (2 to 3 individuals) of journalists wishing to work collaboratively but each member of the group will need to submit an individual application.

Entries in languages other than English are welcome but they must include samples of work in translation as well as in the original. A working knowledge of English is necessary for international applicants.

Fellows are selected for the program based on the quality, relevance, professional experience and promise of the applicant’s work.

Application for Logan Nonfiction Program is free. Successful fellows do not need to pay tuition or residency fees, but do need to fund their travel to the area. There is no reporting stipend or grant associated with the programme.

 Applications close on June 1, 2020.
