Journalists from around the world can apply for training and seed money for their projects.
The Knight-VICE Innovators Fund are inviting innovative journalism projects for a share of US$500,000 to bring their idea to life.
The fund, created by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, VICE News and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, aims to encourage journalists to adopt new forms of storytelling, create new tools and curricula, and take the tools of journalism to new places and to the next generation of news consumers.
Projects may encompass everything from investigative techniques to new presentation styles, to new tools for storytelling. Submissions must include clear goals and have the potential to create a substantial impact that serve a global, connected audience.
Finalists will spend up to three months in New York, working with VICE News staff and the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism on the development and distribution of their work. A stipend for travel and living expenses will be provided.
The deadline to apply is June 1.
