2023 Pulitzer Center Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant 

Deadline: June 30, 2023.

Awarded annually, the Eyewitness Photojournalism Grant supports projects by independent photojournalists historically underrepresented in the global media landscape.


  1. Grants are open to all journalists: writers, photographers, radio producers, and filmmakers; staff journalists as well as freelancers.
  2. They support veteran reporters who have been widely published, but also back younger applicants who are looking for help to jumpstart their careers.
  3. A diversity of voices— gender, ethnicities, backgrounds and nationalities—is important to them. 


  • A description of the proposed project in no more than 250 words.
  • A thorough publication plan. Letters of interest or commitment from editors and news outlets should be included.
  • A preliminary budget estimate, including a basic breakdown of costs. Travel grants cover hard costs associated with the reporting; please do not include stipends for the applicants. Local reporting partner/translator/driver fees are acceptable.
  • Three samples of published work, either print or broadcast.
  • Three professional references. These can be either contact information or letters of recommendation. The latter is encouraged when letters from interested producers or editors are available.
  • A copy of your curriculum vitae.

Applications may also include a more detailed description of project but this will be considered as optional supplement only. The most important part of the submission is the 250-word summary. Applications must be written in English.
