Nine digital journalism projects have been selected as the winners of this year’s Knight News Challenge, picking up a share of $5.1m in funding.
This is the third year of the five-year $25m competition, an international contest to fund experiments in new forms of digital news.
The big winner this year is DocumentCloud, a joint venture between the New York Times and ProPublica. It will use the funding to create an online investigative database where people can find, share and analyse documents.
The next round of applications opens on 1 September.
