The Simon Cumbers Media Fund was established by Irish Aid in memory of Irish journalist Simon Cumbers, who was killed in Saudi Arabia while working with the BBC in 2004. The aim of the Fund is to promote more and better quality coverage of development issues in the Irish media.
Under the Fund, journalists are invited to submit proposals for coverage of a development issue, which will involve travel to a developing country. The deadline for the 2010 summer round of funding is Friday, 7th May. A winter round will be announced in the second half of the year.
