YouTube is offering a $10,000 fellowship with the Pulitzer Center for “high-quality video pieces focused on stories that are not usually covered by the traditional media.” The first round is asking people to make a 3 minute video highlighting a person in your community. They are taking submissions til October 5th.
This is a great opportunity for citizens to go out into their communities and report on what is really important and how individuals are making a difference. There is a lot of news to be found especially when it comes to corruption in politics. The best place to hold elected officials accountable is in your own backyard. So get to muckraking super sleuths.
Get your cameras ready and good luck!
