Future of News/Cooperation Competition
The Knight Foundation will give $6,000 in total prize money to a small competition held at the Future of News and Civic Media conference for conference attendees.
- All projects need to be collaborative, team-based work.
- Teams should formed of people who were not collaborating before. It would be great if team members met at the conference but this is not necessary!
- Proposals should be either brand new ideas or projects to strengthen or coordinate work between attendees' existing projects.
On Friday morning, project proposals will each give short talks pitching their projects or collaboration. Subsequently, the group will vote on the project ideas using Selectricity, a Center for Future Civic Media sponsored voting technology that uses preferential decision-making to help small groups and organizations run elections. Prizes will given to the top three projects in the values of $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place projects respectively.
