Voice 360 (Round 5)
The only way to think of voice as a new way to distribute news is to put voice in the center of news production. It is very difficult to use voice, video or graphics for enriching an article if the tools needed to create this content are diverse. Voice 360 wants to simplify and automate tasks to facilitate content creation.
Istmo Paywall (Round 5)
There is a paradox with how paywalls currently work: the more a user interacts with a website, the more likely they are to pay for the content they love. On the contrary, less engaged readers remain in a ""fee free"" area, bringing low added value to the publishers' revenue model. While this model can work well for bigger media outlets with high levels of traffic, it doesn't support smaller digital outlets. Istmo Paywall is a tool that tracks how subscribers interact with a website and calculates their ""fidelity score"" in a transparent way. The higher the score at the end of a billing cycle, the lower the fee will be for the user - thus rewarding them for their loyalty. "
Write for your readers (Round 5)

A database for investigative journalists to stock the information and documents they find, even if not used, in order to help make the work of another journalist more efficient. The database prototype will test this assumption by working with collaborating journalists in Romania as well as in countries that help with cross-border projects.
New(s) Influencers (Round 5)
Due to uncertainties regarding validity, people have begun to distrust mainstream news media. Now more than ever, individuals turn to social media and their favorite influencers to read and discuss the news that affects them. However, it is often difficult to tell whether influencers are being paid for content and if those contributions have been properly disclosed. The project aims to solve this problem by creating a verification system to identify the degree to which influencers are exercising journalistic integrity and provide them with a hub to share their valuable content.
