Participants will choose datasets provided by the Challenge, and analyze them in conjunction with at least one additional dataset. They will identify connections and correlations and create visual representations and interactive products to showcase their findings. These may include infographics, apps, animations, videos, or other products.

Knight News Challenge on Mobile: applications now open

Applications are now open for the third phase of this year’s Knight News Challenge, which focuses on mobile technology…

As with previous phases, the Knight News Challenge on Mobile is a fairly open-ended proposition. Participants must answer eight questions to explain their “idea on using mobile to improve news, information, democracy and communities, and your ability to execute on it.”

This could conceivably span projects that use text messaging, websites or web apps optimized for mobile users, mobile-friendly crowdsourcing, “native” apps tailored for specific mobile operating systems or devices, geolocation, mesh networking, and more.

Learn more and enter now.

DEADLINE: Sept. 10, noon EDT
