Knight News Challenge

I'm off to Miami to help judge the applications for the Knight Foundation's News Challenge grants for community media projects.

The Knight Foundation has launched a new competition that will award as much as $5 million in its first year in community news projects that best use the digital world to connect people to the real world.

If the quality of entries warrant it, the foundation may spend as much as $25 million during the next five years in the search for bold community news experiments.

They got about a zillion applications...I spent the last 24 hours reading grant proposals...
