We are pleased to announce eight Global Grants of up to £1,500 for employees of PMA member organisations. Apply now!

Deadline: Friday 25th January 2020

The PMA Global Grant is provided for a media project that would benefit the applicant, their organisation, society and meet the objectives of the Public Media Alliance (PMA) and the grant funding organisation, The Grace Wyndham Goldie Trust.

As part of the project the successful applicant will also be required to plan an exchange between their own PMA member organisation and that of the country they intend to visit. On completion of the project the successful applicant is required to submit a report, pictures and an account of their experiences.

In 2019, our Global Grants were awarded to PMA members from a wide range of backgrounds including producers, radio reporters, editors and managers from Lesotho, Seychelles, Bangladesh, Jamaica, Mauritius, Sri Lanka and the Isle of Man. The grantees worked on topics and ideas ranging developing social media guidelines to learning best approaches for climate change coverage, newsroom practices, election reporting and media law.

Beyond the wider aim of developing knowledge and skills, the PMA Global Grants provide a unique opportunity for international networking. They also enable individuals to develop new ways of exercising freedom of expression and facilitate work on projects that support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
