Knight News Challenge

The 2009 Knight News Challenge is year three of a contest awarding as much as $5 million a year for innovative ideas that develop platforms, tools and services to inform and transform community news, conversations, and information distribution and visualization.

Knight Foundation plans to invest at least $25 million over five years in the search for bold community news and social media experiments.

In 2008, 17 winners were awarded over $5 million dollars. Their projects were from around the world and addressed a wide range of issues.
