We are deeply touched by the humanity of the proposals, the sincere interest of our community for the world, and the creative approaches to the art of reportage and storytelling.

The selection committee consisting of 6 judges has completed the final screening and the winners are:

Winning proposals will now receive a grant in the amount ranging from $300-500 USD in order to offset expenses related to the project before the work on the project. The authors will have until December 15, 2021 to complete the proposed project including the completion of at least 12 on-location sketches that tell the story in a reportage format.
We will share the reportages cross channel, so keep an eye out!

About the USK Reportage Grant

In our effort to bring focus to the storytelling aspect of the USk Mission we called on sketchers around the world to send us reportage project proposals. The USk Reportage Grant Program is designed to highlight the best examples of these efforts and to inspire new artist-reporters in our community.  It is open to individual sketchers, chapters, and creative collaborators from around the world. Visual storytelling lies at the heart of the USk movement. Read more…
