VANCOUVER, Dec. 11 /CNW/ - The Tyee (http://www.thetyee.ca), the
independent, online daily newsmagazine based in Vancouver, British Columbia,
is offering a new round of $5,000 fellowships to journalists wanting to report
on issues of importance to citizens in the province.
The deadline is December 19, fast approaching two months after the
request for applications was first announced.
As many as four fellowships will be awarded in the new year.
Journalists can apply to write a series of articles in either the
investigative or solutions-oriented categories. An independent advisory board
selects the winning entries, and The Tyee edits and publishes the resulting
work, which is made available to other publications with authors' permission.
Details about how to enter, criteria, and The Tyee can be found by

This will be the second round of Tyee Fellowships to be given out.
Previous winners drew wide attention with reports on the impact of global
warming on B.C's water supplies; First Nations reconciliation efforts in the
Fraser Valley; and the potential benefits of no longer charging riders on
