There are about 100 hours left to apply to the Knight News Challenge, which is looking for ideas that answer the question: “How can we strengthen the Internet for free expression and innovation?” Entries using our (brief!) submission form are due March 18 by 5 p.m. ET at newschallenge.org.

The contest is open to anyone, anywhere. We will consider both for-profit and nonprofit projects. And for the first time in the Knight News Challenge, we’re open to ideas beyond technology, including research, journalism, policy and education. In other words: anything that might help build a better Internet. The best ideas, which we will announce in June, will win a share of $2.75 million, including $250,000 from Ford Foundation. For the first time, the News Challenge winners’ pool will also include Prototype Fund grantees; we’ll be awarding $35,000 grants through the challenge for early-stage projects.

We’re looking forward to reading your ideas!
