Brid - hybrid co-funding journalism platform (Round 6)
GLOB360 / naTemat.pl would like to tackle the challenge of persuading readers of free website into co-funding quality journalism. They don’t want to pursue "we just need your money" approach as they believe that readers should be involved into decision-making process first and that funding campaigning should be built around that readers/newsroom relationship.
Great reading experience (Round 6)
Online readers are constantly tempted by new experiences on numerous websites and news feeds. But instead of satisfaction coming from deeper understanding, they often experience weariness. On the other hand, reading in-depth articles on small screens can be discouraging, as it requires not only attention focus but it usually comes with usability issues. Polityka will offer comfortable reading of longer texts, develop a set of tools for readers and new methods of editing and presenting content - all of that to match the interests and reading style of demanding readers.
LegislationFILEapp (Round 6)
Currently, there is no comprehensive and viable tool in Poland to find information about specific bills, hence the legislative process is not transparent enough and many find it too complex. The LegislationFILEapp will facilitate day-to-day work of reporters who cover policy and the legislative process, as well as businesses (e.g. consultants) and other interested parties. It will also help to make the legislative process more transparent and appealing to general public by breaking down the complex process into accessible, interactive content.
WP Blast (Round 6)
Young people tend to use phrases such as “tap”, “swipe”, “skip” and “skim-reading”, which describe activities that play a huge role in the modern process of acquiring information by the Millennials and Generation Z. Currently, no Polish media publisher reflects the aforementioned needs of young readers. Everyone is constantly focused on providing universal and traditional news formats. In response, Wirtualna Polska would like to offer WP Blast, which will change the way young readers consume content and the type of it. We would like to help the young people to open to a qualitative journalism and go out of social filter bubbles.
Loquial – the community news network (Round 6)
Communities rely on their local news brands to do what they’ve always done best – professional, investigative, insightful reporting as well as representing broad community content. But these are challenging times for local news brands who can’t provide the level of journalistic resource they once did. Loquial aims to provide both efficiency for newsrooms along with continued representation of community content. By creating something that allows readers to get their content online and into the newspaper, but without tying up editorial resources that could be better used elsewhere, this initiative aims to get more journalistic time back into in depth reporting.
AI bots and trolls filter based on cross-platform internet traffic analysis (Round 6)
Everyone knows podcasts and audio are increasing in popularity, but local news and information has yet to find a sustainable place in the audio world. Laudable aims to address this, working with publishers large and small to create sustainable audio content supported by revenue.
The Story Of... (Round 6)
An enticing new way to organise and monetise a rich photographic archive.
Change the World Impact Tracker (Round 6)
Media organisations worldwide are under pressure to demonstrate the value of journalism to readers, and to show publishers, advertisers and donors that journalism is worth investing in. Its standard to measure reader numbers and engagement using online analytics tools, but very difficult to measure if a news article made a difference in the real world. An impact tracking tool would help Nature and other newsrooms to quickly record and assess how their news articles ‘changed the world’, and to showcase that information.
ThinkIn Network (Round 6)
Tortoise is creating a different kind of newsroom. One that is built with and for our members. We want to break out of the media bubble, to harness the intelligence that sits outside the newsroom. At the heart of it is the ThinkIn. It’s based on a newspaper leader conference. Instead of just being for journalists, members are invited into the newsroom. It’s a place, in the real world and the digital one, where you can come, learn and tell us what you think.
