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.

We 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.

We are still seeking news media partners to collaborate with us on the distribution of selected work.

Applications will open starting on September 18, 2021, and will close on December 31, 2021.

  • 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.
  • In addition to DPxPC funding, we expect news outlets to contribute to the cost of reporting these stories.
  • Applications must be received in English. There is no application fee.


Deadline
The deadline for applications is December 31, 2021 at 11:59 pm (Eastern Time).


About Diversify Photo

Thank you so much for your interest in the 2021-2022 Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellowship!

How can engagement with underreported global news stories support existing curricula, while also preparing students to engage curiously, critically, and empathetically with the world? As part of this paid, virtual Fellowship, two cohorts of educators will explore this question over the course of the 2021-2022 school year in a community with other passionate Fellows, award-winning journalists, and the Pulitzer Center education team. One cohort will be open to educators from Chicago, IL and the other cohort will be open to educators nationwide. Both cohorts will explore the following theme: Journalism and Justice: Elevating Underreported Stories in the Classroom.

In the fall semester, Fellows will participate in eight evening workshops to explore underreported news stories and connect with Center-supported journalists. They will then develop short units (three–10 class periods) that engage their students in making local connections to global news, practicing media literacy skills, and building empathy.

In the spring semester, Fellows will implement their short units, evaluate student outcomes, and share their projects publicly through the Pulitzer Center’s online lesson library and virtual professional development programs.

Upon successful completion of the program, Fellows will be provided with …

  • $1200 stipend (made in three payments of $400 disbursed 11/20, 1/21, and 4/21)
  • Pulitzer Center Teacher Fellow digital badge
  • Certificate for 35 professional learning units (PLUs)

For more details on the Fellowship program, including key dates, please review this page before applying.

Applications are due Sunday, September 26, 2021 at 11:59pm EDT.
