Understanding your jury or: how to write a good pitch (in cooperation with the Journalism Funders Forum)

Pitching your journalism project is a necessary skill: Editors, donors, publishers all need good pitches. Yet donors sometimes sigh deeply about badly crafted applications. How come? In this session we do not ponder the puzzle - instead we've asked four very different donors dealing with applications from journalists to help us understand, what exactly they need to know - and what they want journalists to consider when looking for funding for their work.
