How ECFJ Works
In an effort to be responsive to an ever-fluctuating news cycle, artists and artist-journalist teams can apply to ECFJ for support of their work on a rolling basis.
ECFJ supports a variety of work, including: text, photography, audio and video. Artists and artist-journalist teams with longer-term, research-intensive projects are also encouraged to apply.
Submissions should focus on the following issues:
• Data privacy
• 2020 elections
• Role of technology in society
• Political influence campaigns
• Interrogating harmful technologies
• Countering disinformation
• Artificial Intelligence
Grant support ranges from $500 to $5,000 per project.
Individual artists, collectives, artist-journalist teams (including journalists on staff at a publication) can apply. Collectives must have work samples that reflect a history of working together.
• Domestic and international applicants are welcome.
• Applicants must have an existing commission letter from an editor.
• Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
• Applications must be in English.
Each applicant must provide
• 300-word project description
• Assignment letter from an editor
• A reference contact or letter of support
• Two samples of past work
• Detailed budget of expenses (travel costs, per diem and research costs are acceptable)
At this time, final pieces must be in English.
