Motivation for becoming an NCD Diarist
Statements of motivation should align well with the objectives of the NCD Diaries – providing compelling documentation of lived experiences, as well as recommendations/calls to action to strengthen the NCD response, and inspiring other people living with NCDs to share their stories.
Creativity of the NCD Diaries concept
The NCD Diaries will use in-depth, multimedia-rich and immersive approaches to share lived experiences to drive change. Applicants will be encouraged to share their preferred diary format (first and second choices) and their most creative ideas on developing their NCD Diaries in a compelling and engaging way. Prior experience of communications campaigns and media activities is a bonus. A Practical Guide on Creating NCD Diaries and Sample Diaries (visual, podcast and written) are available as a guidance tool.
