AOTEAROA NZ SCIENCE JOURNALISM FUND COVID-19 ROUND WINNERS AWARDED!

The COVID-19 pandemic is putting pressure on New Zealand’s media at the time the public most needs informative, accurate news. Media outlets have already made decisions to close some operations, cut back on paid columnists and announced redundancies.


In response to these pressures, we launched a special COVID-19 funding round. So far, six new projects have been funded. Funding was provided by ESR, Te Pūnaha Matatini and the Science Media Centre. See the Science Media Centre Press Release for details of the funded projects.


Any organisations wanting to support the Covid-19 fund, please contact Rebecca Priestley at sciencejournalismfund@gmail.com.
