This year’s Knight News Challenge is history, and the 12 lucky winners now have to shift from developing a great pitch to actually building something worthwhile with Knight’s money. If you haven’t followed this year’s cycle, take a look back through our coverage of the competition, the winners, and what it all means.
— The original announcement of all the winners.
— Our profiles of all the winners: City Tracking ($400,000); The Cartoonist ($378,000); LocalWiki ($350,000); NowSpots ($250,000); Order in the Court 2.0 ($250,000); Front Porch Forum ($220,000); GoMap Riga ($250,000); One-Eight ($202,000); Stroome ($200,000); CitySeed ($90,000); StoryMarket ($75,000); and Tilemapping ($74,000).
— Seth Lewis’ analysis of the changing priorities of the Knight Foundation.
— Pre-announcement, our “baseless speculation” about potential winners — which proved to be pretty darned baseless, with only one of our guesses ending up with a grant.
— From October, Knight’s rethinking of how it handles for-profit sales of Knight-funded projects.
And for the nostalgic, you can also check out all our coverage of last year’s cycle.
