“The SVJI will commission, support, and publish a small number of new visual stories with a solutions focus. This will be done through a call for a diverse group of visual journalists to produce original, high-quality stories. The SVJI will provide a small budget for each chosen visual journalist to produce their story, and will encourage stories that can reach global audiences, especially younger audiences, through multiple channels and platforms. There will also be the opportunity for publication with media partners, including the New York Times “Fixes” column, as well as Witness, World Press Photo’s online magazine.
We are looking to commission, support, and publish a small number of new and original visual stories with a solutions focus. The number of projects to be selected depends on the quality of the proposals. The level of funding for each project depends on the needs and viability of the proposal, but as a guide projects could be supported with a grant of approximately €5,000 each.”
DEADLINE: September 6.
