Articles on Asia and HIV/AIDS / Asia Media Forum
The Asia Media Forum is accepting proposals for quality, in-depth stories from Asian countries and communities for a series on Asia and HIV/AIDS to be published on the AMF website prior to World AIDS Day, December 1, 2005. Qualified journalists are those from Asian countries who write in either English or a local language. Proposals must detail the specific story angle to be explored, specific place within the country to be visited for research and interviews, the types of sources to contacted, a current resume of the applicant and two samples of previous work. Priority will be given to proposals addressing these themes: human rights, marginalized groups, trade barriers, economic impacts, children, reproductive health and examples of creative efforts to combat the pandemic. Lots of local color and underreported angles will be given favorable consideration. Those chosen will produce stories or a set of stories of at least 2,000 words. Small grants will be provided for local in-country travel for about three nights, and honoraria will be awarded upon completion of the assignment, full submission of the agreed-upon stories, and compliance with the remaining terms of the project. Stories written for this effort will be published on the AMF website and distributed to regional and international media and other interested parties by the Inter-Press Service Asia-Pacific, but must also be printed in the writers’ own publications.
Interested journalists should submit proposals via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org not later than October 10, 2005.
