What formats can you use?

1. Image-led investigations

A picture tells a thousand words, or so the saying goes. Image-led investigations make use of photos, drawings or videos to lead the narrative. Words are then used to provide additional clarification.

2. Text-led investigations

In a text-led article, words lead the narrative of the investation and can be supported by relevant images, drawings or videos. The usual length of a text-led article is 1,500 to 2,000 words, although your article can be shorter or longer than this. The word limit for text-led articles is usually 5,000 words. Articles up to 6,000 words will be considered.
