Investigative Journalism Network Workshop

Join us for our annual story pitch workshop, which this year will take place again on the sidelines of Prix Italia in Bari, Italy, at the kind invitation of Rai, who will host us at the stunning Pallazzo dell’Acquedotto Pugliese, part of the Apulian Aqueduct, on 5 and 6 October.

As in previous occasions, and to better prepare the session and connect relevant reporters from different news organizations, we need you to send us a brief summary of your ideas in advance. Please remember the stories are shared under strict confidentiality rules.

  • Headline
  • Short description of investigation (including existing sources, challenges, method)
  • Countries involved
  • Tentative publishing deadline

Please register by 25 September 2023. The deadline for pitches is 30 September 2023.

Delegates are strongly encouraged to book their own accommodation in Bari as soon as possible, due to lack of availability. The organizer will not provide any negotiated accommodation. Prix Italia recommends the use of booking.com and like sites for your reservations.

The EBU Investigative Journalism Network is a community of dozens of investigative reporters and editors based in more than 20 countries. All of them -all of you- share an expertise in this field that has proven to be an incredibly useful tool and joint journalistic projects have in the past stemmed from similar networking workshops. As in previous editions of this pitching workshop, the aim is to get active investigative reporters from the EBU community together to discuss story ideas, get acquainted with their peers around the continent and hopefully go back home with a few projects they can collaborate on, and which will result in powerful investigative publications with cross-border impact. The session is conducted under strict confidentiality rules.
