Innovative Digital Projects Invited for 2010 Knight News Challenge
Deadline: October 13, 2009

The Knight News Challenge, an initiative of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, seeks innovations that use new or available technology to distribute content in local communities.

This international contest awards up to $5 million per year for innovative platforms, tools, and services with the potential to inform and transform community news, conversations, and information distribution and visualization.

Anyone may nominate a project from anywhere in the world. To be eligible, projects must use open-source digital technology, must distribute news in the public interest, and must be tested in a local community.

Visit the News Challenge Web site for complete program information.
