The Digital 50.50, introduced by Network of Women Journalists for Digital Rights, is a feminist magazine for women journalists and writers which aims to serve as a tool for providing our audiences with insights and experiences from the digital world which all may learn and to provide a venue for educated discourse on digital rights.
Digital 50.50 will be a monthly e-magazine, which will open a call for article submissions at the start of the month on different topics. If you are interested in joining us for this, you can share your pitch to:
Maryam Saeed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will appreciate innovative submissions, such as thoroughly researched info-graphics, vlogs, picture stories etc that can cater to digital audiences using a wide range of mediums. You are welcome to bring in innovation and fresh ideas. We will get back to the shortlisted journalists and writers who can then submit their final piece
