production grant, mentorship and other benefits


One World Media Fellowship is aimed at aspiring journalists and filmmakers who seek to make a career out of reporting on stories from the global south.

Working in film, print, audio or multimedia, Fellows’ projects bring together integrity and creativity to present underreported stories that break down stereotypes and build cross-cultural connections. They guide filmmakers and journalists on a single project, and provide a supportive network of mentors and peers through the production and completion of their project.

They seek to champion diverse emerging talent, and particularly encourage submissions from underrepresented groups (people of colour, ethnic groups, women, LGBTQ+, or people with disabilities) as well as from people from and based in the global south.
