Washington [ENA] The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington (DC) offers worldwide data journalism awards for proposals that make use of advanced data mining techniques including machine learning, spatial data analysis, satellite imagery, drones and sensors to highlight underreported issues. Pulitzer says it will “consider projects of any scope and size”. Three to five proposals would be selected to receive a grant.

According to the Center most awards for its international reporting/travel programs are between US$5,000 and US$10,000, “but may be more or less depending on circumstances.” Applications will be reviewed on a first come, rolling basis. All newsrooms and independent journalists in the United States and abroad can apply for the awards. Pulitzer is eager for proposals that employ cutting-edge data techniques, as well as embrace collaboration among newsrooms across national borders. “We’re seeking compelling data-driven storytelling, based on original data collection and analysis and strong visuals, that has the potential to shape public discourse and hold the powerful accountable,” the organization says.

The Pulitzer Center raises awareness of global issues through direct support for quality journalism across all media platforms and a unique program of education and public outreach. The Center is not affiliated with Columbia University's Pulitzer Prizes. Recent examples of Pulitzer-supported data journalism projects include How the Police Profit from Seized Property; Measuring the Scale of Conflict in South Sudan; Land Grabs Leave Thirst in Nile River Communities and How Chinese Money Damned Myanmar’s Economic Transition. Pulitzer will select between three to five story proposals for grants in 2020. Eligible are freelance data journalists, staff journalists, or groups of newsrooms working in collaboration with a data project idea.

“We want to make sure that people from many backgrounds and perspectives are empowered to produce data journalism. We strongly encourage proposals from journalists and newsrooms, who represent a broad array of social, racial, ethnic, underrepresented groups, and economic backgrounds,” the Pulitzer invitation reads. Applications would be reviewed as soon as they were received and applicants would be notified within a month if considered for support.
