As a journalist, what’s your dream story? What’s the one topic you would love to cover from start to finish, and what’s holding you back?
Ebyline, a digital publishing platform that recommends quality, vetted freelancers to editors, just launched the 100% Journalism Challenge and is inviting anyone with a passion or interest to submit their ideas for covering that topic from start to finish, end to end and 100%.
Winning ideas will receive up to $35,000, editorial support, and publicity to fully cover a story they care about – from start to finish.
Three judges will decide the winners: Leo Wolinsky, former managing editor of the Los Angeles Times; Robert Wallace, former executive editor of Rolling Stone magazine; and Melanie Sill, executive editor of Southern California Public Radio.
Contest entries are due by Oct. 13. Winners will be announced in December. To apply: www.ebylinecontest.com
