Registration and conference pages are available in EnglishPortuguese, and Spanish.

Shining Light Award Nominations Open

Investigative journalists in developing and transitioning countries: have you completed a great story in the last two years? Applications are open for the only award that honors your work done under threat or duress. The winner gets US$1000 and a free trip to the Rio conference, where the award will be presented alongside ICIJ’s Daniel Pearl Award and the Latin American Investigative Journalism Prize. For more information, see our awards page.  

Travel Grants Available for Rio

GIJN is offering a limited number of travel grants so that journalists in developing and transitioning countries can attend the Global Conference. You must be a professional journalist with a proven track record in investigative reporting, watchdog beat reporting, or data journalism. See our conference pages for how to apply. 

Call for GIJC15 Proposals

Don't delay: Deadline for submission is August 15.

GIJN's Global Reach Expands

With our new website, we’ve tripled traffic to, and last month we hosted visitors from more than 150 countries – that’s three-quarters of the world. Our Facebook community reached 20,000 in May, and we’ve added a Spanish-language Twitter feed, @gijnEs, to our popular English one, @gijn. We’re also revamping GIJN’s LinkedIn community so it becomes a valuable resource for finding investigative journalists around the world. Come join us.

Help Support Our Work

The Global Investigative Journalism Network relies on grants and donations for its critical work expanding investigative reporting around the world. We need your support now to bring developing country journalists to the Global Conference for training by the world’s best investigative and data journalists. (Funds given in the United States are tax deductible by U.S. taxpayers.) Please make a donation if you can.
