APPLICATIONS OPEN APRIL 1, 2017
DUE MAY 20, 2017
This $5,000 grant will support a documentary project — either new or in-progress — from an established mid-career visual journalist. The grant will be awarded directly from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the grantee will work with the Pulitzer Center's existing grant infrastructure to produce the work and participate in their educational programming.
With the support of ONA, these three (3) $2,500 grants will support documentary projects — either new or in-progress — from three emerging visual journalists.
Applicants are encouraged to submit a story, rather than singles, as part of the grant application. The images need not be related to the project proposal. Multimedia projects are welcome.
These grants are open to female, female-identifying, and non-binary documentary photographers of any nationality.
There is no fee to apply.
Applications must be submitted in English.
There are no specific parameters on what is meant by "emerging photographer" — all applicants will be asked to submit a bio that includes number of years spent in the field.
For both grants, half of the funding will be disbursed at the beginning of the project, and half upon completion.
Grantees will retain full ownership of all work completed. Women Photograph, the Pulitzer Center, and ONA may all ask for the use of promotional images to be used explicitly in conjunction with promoting the photographer, the work, and the grants.
