Our 2010 Knight News Challenge coverage

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.

— Also pre-announcement, our February, December, September updates on the selection process.

— 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.

[Full disclosure: The Knight Foundation is a financial supporter of the Nieman Journalism Lab.]

Not a revolution (yet): Data journalism hasn’t changed that much in 4 years, a new paper finds
“Our findings challenge the widespread notion that [data-driven journalism] ‘revolutionizes’ journalism.”
One of India’s most famous newspapermen is turning to digital with a political journalism platform
Shekhar Gupta said he named his new venture The Print to signal to readers that its standards would be high: “We feel there is a belief that once you go digital, the bar is lowered.”
The New York Times released new staff social media guidelines, so phew, thankfully that’s settled
“In social media posts, our journalists must not express partisan opinions, promote political views, endorse candidates, make offensive comments or do anything else that undercuts The Times’s journalistic reputation.”
