DEADLINE: Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant

Event Date: 
June 30, 2023

Diversify Photo and the Pulitzer Center are pleased to open applications for the third year of the Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant. This grant aims to tell 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. Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant is extended to photojournalists worldwide, with a preference for journalists working within their own local communities.

Grants of $3,000 will be awarded to three applicants to support their visual reporting projects. As part of this year's program, recipients will also have the opportunity to be mentored by other visual and photojournalists.

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

  • Applicants must be independent 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: June 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm (Eastern Time).

Details and application.
