The Pulitzer Center Rainforest Journalism Fund has launched the Dom Phillips Reporting Grant: "How to Save the Amazon?" - named after the British journalist killed along with Brazilian Indigenous expert Bruno Pereira during a trip to the Amazon region on June 5, 2022. How to Save the Amazon was the title of the book Phillips wanted to finish writing.
The call is seeking reporting ideas focused on solutions for the future of the Amazon.
Proposals can be centered on the Brazilian Amazon, but projects about the Amazon in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, or Venezuela are also welcomed, just as stories addressing border areas, or projects held collaboratively between Amazon countries.
Selected proposals will receive the necessary funds to carry out the project, in accordance with the detailed budget submitted upon application.
The deadline to apply is Jan. 18, 2023.
