Budget for a reporting project

Hello everyone, I would like to get an idea on the format of a budget for a reporting project.
I was commissioned by a magazine to write an article and I was asked to submit a budget for that assignment.

Can you please guide me to write and submit a good budget?

Thank you

they’re just trying to get an estimate of how much it’s going to cost. your budget just needs to list expected costs for lodging, transportation, any translators/guides/assistants/meals (usually a per day estimate) – separate from this is whatever you are negotiating as payment for your work as a journalist.

This is more for a photographic assignment, but gives an idea.


Do some internet searching to see how various sites suggest handling this. Take a look at whether or not journalists in your region have any sort of organization that can provide some advice and idea about prevailing rates.
