Journalists have been breaking news and covering stories using their phones for years, and events like the lockdowns have increased the need for mobile journalism skills. So, we’re calling journalists from across India to apply for a fellowship to cover stories that they are passionate about, using their mobile phones. We will provide everything from skill development, production support, equipment, and the opportunity to apply for grants to produce and publish these stories.
By the end of this program, fellows were supported with grants to cover stories ranging from education to press freedom. Fellows also participated in sessions that covered digital security and fact-checking.
Three MoJo fellows were selected to participate in YouTube's Creator Program for Independent Journalists, out of 49 journalists globally.
Check out their stories on our YouTube Channel and here are some videos taking you behind-the-scenes:
