About this Grant
Diversify Photo and the Pulitzer Center are pleased to announce the Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant, a series of reporting grants for freelance photojournalists. The grants will support underreported stories told by journalists historically underrepresented in the American press.
Diversify Photo and the Pulitzer Center are offering a series of $1,000 visual reporting grants to support underreported stories told by journalists historically underrepresented in the American press.
In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the grant will prioritize stories told locally in the United States, with minimal travel required. Stories should cover the systemic, underreported issues of our time, including police brutality, the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable communities, environmental racism, food insecurity, the opioid crisis, and beyond.
Applicants must be freelance photojournalists currently based in the United States and proposals must be accompanied by 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.
The application period will be open from June 19, 2020 to July 19, 2020.
