Tips for freelancers: Pitching stories that make a difference

Pitching can be tricky for freelancers, especially when stories are everywhere, and it is even more difficult to find an original idea. So how do you create a killer pitch that will stand out?

The European Journalism Centre recently held a panel discussion, where editors from leading news organisations and projects covering development topics shared tips and the best strategies to pitch stories that make a difference.

The session focused on common mistakes and how they can be avoided to increase your chances of getting commissioned. The panel of editors also shared underreported angles and story ideas about global challenges and development issues that can translate into more opportunities for freelancers.
