The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is accepting applications for the Knight News Challenge, a contest awarding as much as $5 million for innovative ideas using digital experiments to transform community news.
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, You invent it, the foundation fund it.
This competition is open to nonprofits, companies or individuals of any age and anywhere in the world.
The question is not who you are, but what kind of idea you have.
