Pitching for Peace: A Competition for Journalists, War Stories Peace Stories & Pulitzer Center, Applications due 3/1/18

War Stories Peace Stories and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting partner to offer journalism grants for peace reporting in international conflict areas.

War Stories Peace Stories, in partnership with the Pulitzer Center, invites journalists working from any platform to pitch a project focused on an underreported nonviolent response or peace effort in an international conflict area.

Three projects will be selected for Pulitzer Center funding. The level of support awarded will vary between $5,000 and $20,000, based on travel and related costs associated with each project. All three winners will present their pitches live to a panel of judges at the War Stories Peace Stories Symposium on April 11, 2018, at the Times Center in New York City. One of the journalists will be selected for an additional $5,000 award.

Applications are due March 1, 2018 at 11:59 pm EST. Established and emerging journalists working in any medium are welcome to apply. Three winners will be announced on March 20. Winners must be available to travel to NYC for the event on April 11, 2018.
