Check out Africa News Innovation Challenge winners

Twenty digital journalism projects have earned US$ 1 million in funding and technical support, making the Challenge the largest fund for digital journalism experimentation in Africa. These projects focus on citizen engagement, investigative tools and whistleblower security.

As one of the judges, I can tell you these projects are applicable anywhere. The list of winners, announced last week – and choosing them was nearly impossible – can be found here.

Thanks to the African Media Initiative, the organizer of the Challenge, a description of all of the entries – some 500 projects – are online and available for browsing. This is a great resource for anyone looking for new digital journalism ideas.
