About the Grant

Eyebeam Center for the Future of Journalism (ECFJ), a groundbreaking grant-making program that supports artists producing innovative and revelatory journalistic work for major media outlets.

Underwritten by Craig Newmark Philanthropies, ECFJ is the first initiative of its kind to directly facilitate artists’ major media commissions in the realm of journalism. With the belief that artists are central in the invention and design of our shared future, and also critical in shifting public debate, ECFJ will support the execution of pieces that focus on reimagining the way stories are told, particularly around technology and society.

The funds distributed to artists will assist with research, travel, and other expenses many media outlets struggle to cover, allowing stories that are often out of reach in today’s climate to be produced. And, in an effort to be responsive to an ever-fluctuating news cycle, artists will be able to apply to ECFJ for support of their work on a rolling basis. Artists with longer-term, research-intensive projects are also encouraged to apply. Grant support will range from $500 to $5,000.


Artists creating work with a focus on the following issues are encouraged to apply:

• Data privacy

• 2018/2020 elections

• Role of technology in society

• Political influence campaigns

• Interrogating harmful technologies

• Countering disinformation

• Artificial Intelligence
