The deadlines to enter the 2020 Canadian and U.S Hillman Prize contests have passed. The next deadlines will be in January 2021. Please see our website for more information.
Please submit a well-focused story proposal of no more than three pages. Think of it as a pitch, much like you would submit to an editor: give us enough preliminary reporting and documentation to demonstrate that the story is solid. The proposal should highlight what’s new and significant about the story, why it matters now, any unique access or documents you may have, and what its potential impact might be.
There is no deadline. We will accept pitches on a rolling basis.
The maximum grant will be $5,000 but grants of varying amounts will be awarded based on demonstrated need. You must have an outlet already attached.
