On August 5, the non-profit arm of Mongabay, the leading biodiversity news and reporting service, announced a new journalism competition! It will offer $20,000 for the winning journalist to focus on innovation in biodiversity conservation. The resulting work will be featured on Mongabay.com and other news outlets.
The program is part of Mongabay.org's new "Special Reporting Initiatives" and designed to bring more in-depth and focused attention on key environmental topics. You can read more about the competition, and how to apply here.
