Register

Mongabay is seeking pitches for investigative reporting projects that go beyond the daily news headlines to uncover wrongdoing at the intersection of global trade and environmental crisis. As the products that most people use and consume every day (food, clothing, shelter, transportation, communication) leave an ecological trail across global supply chains. There is a critical need for greater transparency, particularly within transnational natural resource industries such as agribusiness and extractives, as a lack of access to accurate and information hinders action to address increasing levels of environmental stress and social injustice.

Eligibility:

  • Proposals from experienced journalists and small cross-border teams of journalists and researchers with story-specific expertise for reported articles, or for investigative series, focusing on a particular region, commodity, company, or theme within the remit of the reporting project. 
  • Strong pitches involving creative uses of multimedia, open-source intelligence, video and/or data analysis and visualization will be given priority.
  • Consider proposals for fully edited and produced videos of up to 10 minutes in length. 
  • Opinion pieces and conventional news reporting will not be considered.
  • Completed stories will be published in English on Mongabay.com under an open Creative Commons license that allows for sharing and re-posting. 
  • They could potentially be translated into another language and published by Mongabay.

Benefits:

Mongabay will negotiate all fees and contracts on a per-project basis

Required Documents:

  • Applicants must submit a pitch That includes:
  1. Several potential stories published writing samples.
