The ICFJ Knight Fellows create a culture of news innovation and experimentation worldwide to deepen coverage, expand news delivery and engage citizens in the editorial process. Through that work, they launch web and mobile tools that transform journalism in their regions and spark new opportunities globally.
We've curated a list of ICFJ Knight tools that we think would offer great possibilities for journalists and technologists at ONA 2016. If you adopt any of these tools, or lead any new projects inspired by them, tweet at us via @ICFJKnight.
ICFJ Knight Fellows Justin Arenstein, Irshad Daftari, Nasr ul Hadi, John Kluver Omar Mohammed, Jacopo Ottaviani, Shaheryar Popalzai, Chris Roper and Janine Warner as well as ICFJ staff Joyce Barnathan, Patrick Butler, Ben Colmery, Baindu Kallon, Elyssa Pachico and Vjollca Shtylla will be at ONA 2016. Connect with them there!
The Knight International Journalism Fellowships program is funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. The Fellows build on past successes in the Knight program, which has a strong record of achieving impact. They work in countries where there is a good opportunity to create the news media of the future.
With additional support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Knight Fellows are empowering journalists in sub-Saharan Africa to use the latest digital tools to tell compelling stories on health and development issues.
