The Knight News Challenge is a media innovation contest funded and run by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The 2011 Challenge seeks innovation in the use of digital technologies that advance the goal of informing and engaging communities. The deadline for submissions is December 1.
This year's Challenge will focus on four categories: Mobile, Authenticity, Sustainability and Community. Applications must fit one (or more) of these categories and also make use of digital technology in an innovative way.
Individuals, schools, nonprofits, governments and businesses all may enter. You do not need to be a U.S. citizen to enter. And, while the application must be in English your project doesn’t have to be. However, the idea should be replicable in any language.
Winners will receive cash to support the development of their work.
