Among many quality proposals for local analytical and investigative journalistic stories, five candidates were selected

Slavko Ćuruvija Foundation selected five journalists to participate in Serbian local media support program called “What is Serbia Silent About?”.

Choosing from a number of quality proposals for local analytical and investigative journalistic stories, the Foundation decided that following journalists will get a chance to realize their stories:

Ljubica Jocić (Južne vesti news portal, Niš), Violeta Glišić (Kragujevačke novine weekly newspaper, Kragujevac), Ana Aćimov (Moj Bečej news portal, Bečej), Natalija Jakovljević Ivanić (Magločistač news portal, Subotica) and Denis Kolundžija (an independent journalist whose story will be published by 021 news portal, Novi Sad).

Selected journalists will work on their stories for four months, with mentorial and financial help of Slavko Ćuruvija Foundation.

The Foundation will provide publishing of completed stories in national media, ensuring their additional visibility.

Call for proposals had been aimed at journalists of local media willing to tell a good story of considerable significance for their local community, providing the stories had been previously underreported.

Purpose of “What is Serbia Silent About?” program is to improve knowledge and skills of local internet and print media journalists in analytical and investigative journalism, as well as to facilitate cooperation of Serbian local media and encourage syndication among them.

This project is being implemented with support of Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of The German Marshall Fund of the United States.
