In 2022, Pulitzer Center grantees reported from 89 countries on urgent deforestation of the world’s rainforests, extreme heat, the migration and refugee crises, racial justice, reproductive rights, mass incarceration, and global conflict.
Our grantees used creative storytelling methods and formats—cinemagraphs, short documentaries, photo essays, illustrations. They continued shining a light on underreported stories, and stuck with those stories—some for multiple years, pointing to the interdependent nature of our challenges and exploring possible solutions.
Of the over 250 projects and thousands of stories supported by the Pulitzer Center this year, this list represents just 36 of our staff’s 2022 favorites to highlight.
We heard from our readers this year that Pulitzer Center journalism is invaluable and essential—that it helps you be creative and positive thinkers, and widens your scope of understanding by making more of the world visible. In partnership with our grantees and education partners around the world, we intend to continue doing just that.
Click the link above and read on for our staff’s favorite stories of the year, and help us continue telling these stories in 2023 and beyond.
