If your proposal involves reporting in a hostile or dangerous environment, they require that you and your potential outlets adhere strictly to the ACOS Alliance principles.
If your proposal involves reporting in a hostile or dangerous environment, they require that you obtain safety equipment (including, but not limited to helmets, bulletproof vests and GPS personal locator beacons).
The cost of leasing or purchasing such equipment should be included in your project budget.
Staff journalists who plan to report from conflict zones or hostile environments must have a firm assignment from a news organisation that will assume full responsibility for his/her well-being. Alternatively, freelancers and bloggers who do not have backing from a news organisation must include appropriate insurance in your project budget. That should cover illness, repatriation, disability and loss of life.
They require that their grant recipients who plan to report from conflict zones or hostile environments undergo First Aid and Safety, as well as Hostile Environment Training, where appropriate. JFJ is committed to covering the cost of such training conducted by accredited organisations.
