Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant Opens for Applications

Andrea Wise
Co-founder of Diversify Photo

Diversify Photo, a community of non-western photographers, editors, and visual producers based in Everywhere in the United States, which seeks to change the “colonial” culture in photography, and the Washington D.C.-based Pulitzer Center, which raises awareness of underreported global issues through direct support for quality journalism, have opened applications for the third year of the “Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant”, which aims to tell visual stories about and by photojournalists from historically underrepresented communities.

Grant is open to photojournalists worldwide, with a preference for journalists working within their own local communities.

Photojournalists are allowed to submit proposals for stories that focus on and explore the systemic and underreported issues in various communities, including but not limited to racial justice, climate change, environmental justice, gender equality, and human rights.

The Eyewitness Photojournalism Grants of $3,000 will be awarded to three applicants to support their visual reporting projects. As part of this year’s programme, recipients will be opportune to mentorship by other visual and photojournalists.

Eligible applicants must be independent photojournalists from anywhere in the world and they are strongly encouraged to apply with a letter of commitment from a news outlet with significant reach.

In addition to DPxPC funding, organisers expect news outlets to contribute to the cost of reporting these stories.

Applications must be received in English and there is no application fee.

The deadline for submission of applications is June 30, 2023, at 11:59 pm(Eastern Time).
