One World Media Climate & Labour Film Grant 2024 (Up to £20k funding)

The Pulitzer Center, the Financial Times and One World Media are excited to announce a new film partnership focused on climate change and labour. They are looking for an experienced filmmaker who wants to explore, through a short documentary, how climate change is affecting lives and work in the global south. They want to amplify new perspectives, stories and voices on changing climate with particular focus on the economic transition. Applications are open for the One World Media Climate & Labour Film Grant 2024.

Through Pulitzer’s Our Work/Environment initiative, journalists have documented some of the risks of rising temperatures for workers, in fields and in factories. In the past two years, reporters have traveled throughout India and across Nigeria, Ghana, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Uruguay, Paraguay and South Africa to document the impact of extreme heat and weather on some of the world’s most vulnerable workers—including women who are often heads of household—and they encourage stories that detail the interconnected nature of business, climate, and consumer choices. They want to understand workers. They want to understand companies. They appreciate accountability reporting.

Benefits of Climate & Labour Film Grant

The successful filmmaker will receive the following:

  • Up to £20k funding for their film
  • A named executive for their documentary and production support
  • A commission from the Financial Times with their final film made freely available on the FT’s platform.
  • Global promotion of their film from all three partners and associated screenings
  • Membership of the OWM global alumni network
