International Journalist's Network | Documentary Funding Grants
The International Journalist's Network provides a wide variety of opportunities for full-time, freelance, professional, semi-professional and citizen journalists to acquire funding needed to see their project through. In addition to helping those seeking funding, IJNet has a robust web selection of advice, tutorials and training.
Media is constantly changing. From the manner in which information is acquired (cameras, writing, recording) to the way in which gathered information is shared (social networks, citizen reporting through traditional news channels, blogs) IJNet helps those engaged in documenting, reporting or trying to change the world up-to-date with the latest skills needed and how to acquire them to stay relevant.
IJNet serves as a one-stop-shop for those seeking grants or funding. IJNet reduces the amount of time one may spend seeking grants by aggregating opportunities into one site.
Those seeking freelance jobs can also find avenues to share their story or to take part in another organization's efforts to share a particular message.
With articles ranging from education on basic journalism techniques to professional encouragement from those who have been there, IJNet offers a wealth of information and opportunity to those seeking to tell a story.
I just wanted to say that I think your website is amazing. I am a beginner with an idea, and the info and articles on your website are easy to understand and answer many questions I have. I can't wait to start filming!

I am a professional filmmaker, and I applaud this site for detailing the ABC's of documentary filmmaking. It serves as my own checklist as I continue making my own films... Thanks!
