The Online News Association, Knight Foundation and Google News Initiative are partnering to launch this open call for ideas, offering ten grants of up to $20,000 each to test, refine and build out a project.

This is an open call for ideas using immersive storytelling to discover new ways to engage audiences and advance the field of journalism.

  • In addition to the funding opportunity, Challenge winners become part of the Journalism 360 ecosystem and have access to our ambassador team and a growing network of immersive storytellers. Our goal is to build a community of people who are passionate about new ways of storytelling and are excited to learn from one another and the community at large.
