A solutions focus changes the frame of a story. Solutions visual journalism is image-led rigorous reporting on a response to a problem, and we have outlined its features here: https://www.worldpressphoto.org/programs/develop/solutions-visual-journalism-resources/38797. The viability of the proposed project and fit with the five features of solutions journalism will be the criteria against which applications will be judged.
Please answer the questions below, and send us examples of your visual work, either via links to online sites, or as a small portfolio via WeTransfer to David Campbell, Director of Programs and Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with 'SVJI Application' in the WeTransfer subject heading.
The deadline for applications is Friday 6 September 2019.
We will then select a shortlist and arrange online interviews with applicants on the shortlist before announcing the stories that have been commissioned.
PLEASE NOTE: due to staff leave we will not be able to answer any email queries before 28 August, but we will respond promptly after that date and before the deadline.
