Tell Me About Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant:

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.

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.
