Two weeks left to apply for Knight News Challenge

Just two weeks left to apply for the Knight News Challenge, a contest awarding up to $5 million to innovative ideas for distributing news in the digital age.
Do you have a big idea for informing and inspiring a geographic community? Does it include innovative use of new digital tools or processes such as social media, mash-ups or wikis? How about new ways to exchange information via hand-held devices like cell phones? Knight Foundation wants to know.

There are three rules to follow to apply:

  1. Use digital, open-source technology.
  2. Distribute news in the public interest.
  3. Test your project in a local community.
Applications are being accepted through Oct. 15th. If you have questions about your application, tune into a live chat online on October 8th at 11:00am at www.newschallenge.org.
