The Pulitzer Center seeks story pitches for reporting projects on issues impacting communities in sub-Saharan Africa, including but not limited to water and sanitation, land degradation and coastal erosion, education, maternal health, and climate resilience.

This opportunity is open to newsrooms, newsroom staff, and freelance journalists. Grants are open to reporters, photographers, radio/audio journalists, television/video journalists, and documentary filmmakers. Local journalists are encouraged to apply.

Special emphasis will be placed on projects that inform behavior and policies that improve the lives of the communities reported on.

Projects across all media platforms and ambitious proposals that combine print, photography, audio, and/or video for one or more news outlets are encouraged.
