The Foundation's Knight News Challenge is an international contest that accelerates media innovation by funding breakthrough ideas in news and information.
The current Knight News Challenge will focus on the question: "How can we strengthen the Internet for free expression and innovation?"
This is an open call for ideas. The Foundation believes that access to information is key to vibrant and successful communities, and wants the Internet to remain an open, equitable platform for free expression, commerce, and learning.
This challenge is open to a range of approaches. In addition to technologies, ideas focused on journalism, policy, research, education -- any innovative project that results in a stronger Internet -- are encouraged.
Winners receive awards ranging from $1,000 to $1,000,000. The typical award size is between $200,000 and $500,000, but it varies with each project and contest. Winners also receive support from Knight’s network of influential peers and advisors to help advance their ideas.Innovators from all industries and countries are invited to participate.
