**Calling all Filipino journalists**

The Open Knowledge Foundation <http://okfn.org> and the Philippine Centre
for Investigative Journalism <http://pcij.org/> have just opened up
applications for their data journalism training programme that will take
place this summer.

The programme will train journalists on the tools and techniques required
to gain and communicate insight from public data, including web scraping,
database analysis and interactive visualization. The program will support
journalists in using data to back their stories, which will be published by
their media organization over a period of five months.

Participating teams will benefit from the following:

   - A 3-day data journalism training workshop by the Open Knowledge
   Foundation and PCIJ in July 2015 in Manila
   - A series of online tutorials on a variety of topics from digital
   security to online mapping
   - Technical support in developing interactive visual content to
   accompany published data-driven stories
