Annenberg Logo
Call for Applications!  Reporting Grants and All-Expenses-Paid
Health Journalism Fellowship

When: Oct. 4-9, 2009
Where: Los Angeles
Deadline to Apply: August 6, 2009

The deadline is fast approaching for applications to the national track of The California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships, based at USC's Annenberg School of Journalism.


The week-long, all-expenses-paid fellowship allows journalists to spend a week in Los Angeles exploring the intersection between community health, health policy and the nation's growing ethnic diversity, as well as the role that factors such as race, ethnicity, pollution and violence play in prospects for good health. You'll come away from the experience with a multitude of story ideas and sources, plus a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of good health journalism.


The fellowships are open to print, broadcast and multimedia journalists from around the country. We're looking for journalists who have a passion for health stories -- including investigative reporters, generalists and environment or social justice specialists --  not just those on the health beat. Fellows receive free tuition, meals, travel, and lodging plus a $2,000 stipend upon publication or broadcast of a major fellowship project.  To encourage collaboration between mainstream and ethnic media, preference will be given to applicants who propose a joint project for use by both media outlets.


For more information, visit www.reportingonhealth.org, call (213) 437-4419 or e-mail Martha Shirk at cahealth@usc.edu.

BILL BACHMANN is taking another photo group on a humanitarian trip to
CUBA before it changes. As a photographer, this is the last chance to
photograph all over Cuba before the USA allows companies to openly trade
and it changes the Cuban experience drastically! Soon all the old autos
will be gone (to the USA for investors!,) all the old peeling paint
buildings are knocked down to have McDonalds, Pizza Huts, WalMarts, etc
on every corner. If you wait, the photos will never be the same--- nor
will the low prices! A legal trip to Cuba on a 45-minute flight from
Miami to Havana is available with Bill this Fall. Take a look at Bill's
website at www.billbachmann.com to see his colorful imagery. If you are
then interested in the trip, contact Bill at his email from the site and
he will send you a link to his Cuba website with all the information on
the trip, itinerary, pricing, etc.

The Atlanta Journal has a "spot the changes" online game, where you go on and have 45 seconds to spot 5 changes in a photo. 
 
It's fun, and, to be honest, I hadn't thought about the implications.  I would be more comfortable with it if it included a disclaimer that explained that, while photojournalists are not allowed to make changes like these, it's still interesting to see what can be done. 
 
Might be a way to actually educate people as to what we "don't" do.

I was surprised, and disappointed to see an introduction to a Photoshop game for readers in a daily newspaper this morning. The text below is from the web link given in print. I think that newspapers and magazines -like the new Life magazine- that have Photoshop games for readers hurt our credibility as a profession. These games arguably imply that the work of the publications' photojournalists is not beyond being altered in Photoshop before publication. The teaser, which was headlined "Photoshopping Favre" was the lead item on the page 2 "Best of the Web" summary of the newspaper's web site content for the day.

Mark Hertzberg

"If all the indications of Brett Favre's return to the NFL - and the hated Minnesota Vikings - are correct...

So how about we have some fun with it, even if you can't stand the thought of it as a Green Bay Packers fan.

If you're a clever sort and know your way around Photoshop or some other photo-editing software, give us your best doctored-up photo creation of Brett Favre as a Viking.

(Note: If you need a photo as a base for your creation, here's a gallery of XXXXXX Newspaper shots from throughout Favre's career with the Green Bay Packers. Please don't use other copyrighted photos.)

WAYNE — A Winthrop man escaped serious injury Monday when he was swept over
the North Wayne Dam and fell to the rocks below.

Shawn Lawson, 25, was taken by ambulance to Central Maine Medical Center in
Lewiston, where he was treated and released, according to a hospital
spokeswoman.

Lawson and a friend were swimming about 3 p.m. when both began to drift
toward the dam, said Andy Molloy, a staff photographer with the Kennebec
Journal who had been snapping feature photos of the men before the accident.

The swimming area near the dam, which is for residents only, is typically
very safe, said Wayne Assistant Fire Chief Brian Roche. But a string of
recent rainstorms has made the area much more volatile.

"The water's running real strong," Roche said. "When water's running that
hard, it's not safe. It's like Niagara (Falls) coming over there."

Molloy said he tried to warn the men to get out of the water. Lawson's
friend, who was not identified, was able to swim to shore, but Lawson was
pulled toward the dam.

He was able to briefly stop his fall by holding onto a metal control wheel
at the top of the falls, but then fell about 15 feet to the rocks below.

"He just simply went over the falls," Roche said.

Lawson was submerged up to his shoulders, but was able to keep his head
above water by holding onto branches at the base of the dam, Molloy said.

Molloy, who has worked as a first responder in the past, and two men who had
been working nearby were able to pull Lawson to shore and hold him above
water until rescuers arrived.

"Andy (Molloy) went into the water and dragged him to the edge," Roche said.
"He was the man who saved (Lawson) from going under permanently."

Fw: July 22 Deadline Coming Up - Grants of up to $10,000 for HealthJournalism


From: USC Annenberg School of Journalism
Date: Wed, 8 Jul 2009 02:40:46 -0400 (EDT)
To: <xipnek@aol.com>
Subject: July 22 Deadline Coming Up - Grants of up to $10,000 for Health Journalism

Just two weeks until the application deadline...
 
New Grants of up to $10,000 
For Reporting on Community Health 
 
Application Deadline: July 22, 2009

The deadline is approaching for applications to the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health Journalism, which will offer grants of between $2,500 and $10,000 this year to as many as 10 print, broadcast and new media journalists.

 

The grants support ambitious investigative or explanatory journalism projects on community health policy. Joint projects between mainstream and ethnic/community media are encouraged.

 

The deadline to apply for this year's grants is July 22. For more information and an application, visit ReportingonHealth.org, contact Martha Shirk at cahealth@usc.edu or call (213) 437-4439.

 

Grants will be offered again in 2010 and 2011.

 

The Hunt Fund will support projects that examine the effects on a community's health of factors such as poverty, health disparities, pollution, violence, land use, urban development, access to health resources and access to healthy food. The fund honors the legacy of Dennis A. Hunt, a visionary communications leader at The California Endowment.

 

The fund is administered by the USC Annenberg/California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships, which was co-founded by Hunt. The fund is financed by memorial contributions from Hunt's friends and colleagues.Grantees will be selected by an advisory board, which includes professionals working in journalism, public policy and communications.

 

Grants, which are open to both newsroom staffers and freelancers, can defray reporting and publishing-related costs such as travel, Web development, database acquisition, translation services, and a journalist's otherwise uncompensated time. Eighty percent of the amount of each grant will be paid at the outset of the project, with the remaining 20 percent to be paid upon publication or broadcast. Stories must be published or broadcast within one year of grant awards.

 

Grant recipients also are automatically awarded acceptance in the National Fellowships of The California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships. Applicants are expected to join ReportingonHealth.org, a new Web 2.0 community for health journalism and the official Web site for the Fellowships.

Looking for images for the following:
The 'Glacier Express' is (in the words of the author) a 75-year-old {train} route from Zermatt to St. Moritz that passes through some of Switzerland's prime ski resorts along the way. And with the right kind of ticket, you can ride the rails in style, stopping off for a few days at timeless as well as
up-and-coming resorts.

Shots of the train, and picturesque shots of train stations (Banhof), scenery shots from windows, etc.

Mountains along the route, specifically the Matterhorn

Rhine River along the route

Passes along the route: Furka, Oberalp,

Towns of Zermatt, Andermatt, Disentis / M¸ster, Chur, St. Moritz,
Pontresina, Arosa

Ski areas around St. Moritz: Engadin, Diavolezza and Lagalb, Piz Bernina, Corvatsch. Need some action shots.

Chez Vrony, a classic Zermatt mountain hut in the hamlet of Findeln

skiers: Jessica Quinn, Susanna Magruder, and Andrea Binning

Plus hotels listed below.

Kronenhof Hotel

Tschuggen Grand Hotel

Andermatt Resort

Post Hotel

This is our adventure feature, and as such, needs to be heavily focused on the skiing end of things. Very active, but with the historic feel of both the towns and the trains as a backdrop.

Request Title: WEST SHORE OF LAKE TAHOE, USA
Request reference: Lake Tahoe
Looking for photos of the communities, people, ski resorts, and hospitality of the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. (Specifics below)

The story will be about the unpretentious historic feel of the West Shore, how it has a slow, family and community-oriented flavor as opposed to the glitz of South Shore and the traffic of North Shore. Many of the families here have had homes in the area for four generations. It's the type of place where families get together for marshmallow roasts and ice skating and bonfires on Christmas Eve and New Years. This makes West Shore, which has an old New England feel, a great getaway for an off the beaten path Tahoe ski trip.

This is potentially a cover story, so any images that successfully convey a sense of place and luxury are encouraged. Obviously, need beautiful snow and an inviting atmosphere ã our affluent, well-traveled readers should look at the image and immediately want to step into it.

The story is about West Shore and what sets it apart from glitzy South Shore and congested North Shore. Luxury in this case doesn¼t necessarily mean flashy (that¼s South Shore)ãthe place is welcoming, people have lived here for generations and created a haven for people who want to enjoy the „vacation lifestyle¾. Think meaningful moments, togetherness, appreciating
the gorgeous environment and spending quality time connecting. A big part of the area's appeal is the personal attention/customer service and the lack of crowds.

Oh yeah, the skiing is good, too: nice untracked powder, plus there's tree skiing.

Places:

Homewood Mountain Resort: scenic exteriors, especially any that can show the slopes and the gorgeous lake; the Mid-Mountain pavilion is supposed to have great views and is a local favorite

Homewood town: street scenes, showcase the photogenic little shops and general stores; again, we¼re conveying a sense of family and community, anything that speaks to the 'vacation lifestyle': coziness, welcoming, warmth, hospitality, community

The writer calls out Obexer's Market in particular, it¼s a
marina/bait shop but has a long history in the area: family-owned and operated by the Obexers since the 1920s and might be good for a scenic exterior shot

West Shore CafÈ and Inn: again, scenic exteriors (it¼s sandwiched
between the lake and the mountains, no shortage of scenery here), but the interiors of the restaurant and inn/rooms may also provide some good shots, lots of wood and stone, natural/earth-toned palette. Since it¼s a holiday
issue, wouldn't hurt to have some gorgeous shots of warming, hearty winter/holiday food

Granlibakken: lodge and ski area, it was known for the ski jump
built in the 1930s

Tahoma Meadows: rustic, cozy-looking red cottages, may be some good exterior shots here, especially if the color pops with the snow

Chaney House B&B: a stone mansion surrounded by trees, may be some good exteriors here as well

Towns on the west shore: Tahoma, Homewood, Sunnyside. There are
grand homes (not new McMansions) in and in between these towns.

Alpine Meadows is West Shore¼s other resort. It has steep and deep terrain a la Squaw but with a smaller and more manageable size. The Sherwood Bowl, tucked over a ridge on the ski area¼s back side, is where the locals head to get great turns and lounge in the sun at the outdoor Ice Bar.

People:
Since the story is about family/community/hospitality/hominess, shots of people should show their spirit and friendliness, no stagey brochure-type mug shots

Rick Brown, current owner of Homewood Mountain Resort and grandson of the founder

Dick and Ullie White, owners of Tahoma Meadows

Gary Chaney, owner of Tahoma Meadows
