International Press Institute: News Innovation Contest
Opportunity type: Awards
Opportunity closing date: Wednesday, June 1, 2011

The International Press Institute (IPI) is a global network of editors, media executives and leading journalists. IPI is dedicated to the furtherance and safeguarding of press freedom, the protection of freedom of opinion and expression, the promotion of the free flow of news and information, and the improvement of the practices of journalism.

IPI invites breakthrough ideas that have the potential to create sustainable impact and that meet the following general criteria - digital, including mobile, open-source technology created by journalists or for journalists and distributed in the public interest, for the News Innovation Contest.

The contest is aimed at advancing the future of news by funding new ways to digitally inform communities in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Via these grants, IPI is supporting projects from not-for-profit and for-profit organisations that revolve around online news that advances press freedom, the development of more sustainable business models and the training of journalists.

Awards totalling much as US$ 2.7 million will be given away this year.

Applications should fit into one of three categories:
News Platforms - Advancement in Digital News Platforms;
Sustainability - Advancement of Business Models;
Training - Advancement in Trainings & Journalism Excellence.
To enter, complete the application form by selecting the category you wish to apply for, including a description of your project idea, time-frame and budget estimate or a detailed description of your existing online site, a description on its users and a link to the site.

No applications are accepted by mail, e-mail, fax or any other means.

If IPI believes your idea or site meets the criteria, it will ask you to write a full proposal. You will be notified via e-mail.
