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

Diversify Photo is a community of BIPOC and non-western photographers, editors, and visual producers working to break with the predominantly colonial and patriarchal eye through which history and the mass media has seen and recorded the images of our time. Their international online database is used by editors at major media outlets seeking to diversify their rosters of visual storytellers, and they create networking, exhibiting, speaking, community-building, and resource-sharing opportunities for their members.

About the Pulitzer Center

The Pulitzer Center, founded in 2006 and based in Washington, DC, has become a major source of support for enterprise reporting on global issues — and an innovative leader in working with schools and universities to bring those issues into classrooms everywhere.

The Center now supports over 150 reporting projects a year. Its work with the Associated Press covering the war in Yemen won a Pulitzer Prize for international reporting. The Center's projects have been among the winners each of the past three years at the RFK Awards and the Overseas Press Club; the Center itself has been recognized for best online reporting by the National Press Foundation, the National Press Club, and the Society of Professional Journalists.

The Pulitzer Center, a nonprofit organization that supports independent global journalism, is now accepting reporting fellowship applications for its Rainforest Investigations Network (RIN).

The network seeks to harness investigative reporting and cross-border collaboration to tackle stories at the intersection of climate change, corruption, and governance in the world’s three main tropical rainforest regions: Amazon, Congo Basin, and Southeast Asia.

The investigative fellows will work on individual and collaborative reporting projects to systematically probe the drivers of deforestation across the three regions, from money flows to land-grabbing activities and human rights violations.

The last day to apply is Dec. 15, 2021 at 11:59 pm EST.
