Application Deadline:December 31, 2021 at 11:59 pm
Diversify Photo and the Pulitzer Center are pleased to open applications for the second year of the Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant, which is aimed at telling visual stories about and by photojournalists from historically underrepresented communities.
Pulitzer Center invite photojournalists to submit proposals for stories that focus on and explore the systemic and underreported issues in our communities, including but not limited to racial justice, climate change, environmental justice, gender equality, and human rights. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 applicants were limited to reporting within their local communities in the United States. This year, the Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant is extended to photojournalists around the world, with preference for journalists working within their own local communities. Grants of $2,500 will be awarded to three applicants to support their visual reporting projects.
- Applicants must be freelance photojournalists from anywhere in the world, and applicants are strongly encouraged to apply with a letter of commitment from a news outlet with significant reach.
- Applications must be received in English. There is no application fee.
- In addition to DPxPC funding, we expect news outlets to contribute to the cost of reporting these stories.
In addition to the Pulitzer Center editorial team, applications will be reviewed by the following jurors:
- Roberto (Bear) Guerra
- Sandra Stevenson
- Yukiko Yamagata
The deadline for applications is December 31, 2021 at 11:59 pm (Eastern Time)
