2012 Persephone Miel Fellowship Call for Proposals
January 13, 2012 /Photography News/ The Persephone Miel Fellowship, overseen by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with Internews, is designed to help media professionals outside of the United States do the kind of reporting they've always wanted to do, and enable them to bring their work to a broader international audience. The fellowship will benefit those with limited access to other fellowships or international distribution of their work.
The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting will provide a travel grant of $7500 for a reporting project on topics and regions of global importance, with an emphasis on issues that have gone unreported or under-reported in the mainstream American media. Payment of first half of the grant is disbursed prior to travel, upon receipt of required materials, and the second half on submission of principal work for publication/broadcast. The Center will also work with the fellowship recipients to distribute the work across multiple platforms in the US to reach the widest possible audience. Projects with multi-media components that combine print/photography and video are strongly encouraged.
The Persephone Miel fellowships are open to all journalists, writers, photographers, radio producers or filmmakers; staff journalists as well as free-lancers and media professionals outside the US, who are seeking to report from their home country. Women are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be proficient in English.
Deadline: February 15, 2012
