News and Opportunities


The African Investigative Journalism Conference (#AIJC19) is the premier annual gathering of African investigative reporters – a three-day international conference for and about investigative journalism. It involves skills training, networking, collaboration and in-depth accounts of major investigative stories. It is hosted by the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

This year’s conference will feature more than 50 speakers in workshops, panel discussions and networking sessions, as well as skills training in areas such as advanced data analysis and security. Key speakers include award-winning journalists from across the world and Africa’s best. This is a chance to hear and meet those leading the field and enhance your skills with the latest tools and tips.

In 2019, with the support of our sponsors and partners, we have a budget to bring 40 African journalists to Johannesburg for the conference. Places are open to print and broadcast journalists with a proven track record in investigative journalism, who want to develop their investigative skills and learn from other African and international journalists. Fellows will be required to either produce a story or do a presentation in their home country, based on learnings from the conference.

What will the bursary cover?

The bursary will cover flights to Johannesburg, airport transfers in Johannesburg, accommodation, transport to and from the conference, meals and conference fees. It does not cover home-country transport, visa costs or a per diem.
Applications close on August 2 2019. Successful applicants will be notified by email by August 30, 2018.
Note: The conference will be conducted in English and there will be no translation.
