The Knight Foundation have just launched their 2013 News Challenge and this year it’s about Open Government. While there’s much talk (and tech) about doing open, connected, transparent government, this is an opportunity to work on how we communicate it.
Applications for the US $5 million fund open 19 February, however an “inspiration phase” has just launched with a webspace based on the OpenIDEO platform. Interested participants can share ideas and get support for their submissions.
