Grants are an incredible and often-underused way to fund ambitious creative projects, especially if you’re pitching to a publication that may not be able to cover your travel or research expenses. This week, we’re diving into the world of grants, including how to pick which grants and fellowships to apply to, and the best ways to craft a successful application.
In service of this topic, we brought on our first photojournalist, Daniella Zalcman. She’s based between New York and Paris and her work has been supported by many grantors including the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, National Geographic Society, International Womens’ Media Foundation, and more. She is also the founder of Women Photograph, a nonprofit that elevates the voices and work of female and non-binary visual journalists.
Along with this episode, our Co-op members get access to Daniella’s five guiding questions for crafting a solid grant application; her business plan for 2020; and a spreadsheet for you to log and track grants, fellowships or residencies
