GNI Innovation Challenges

The Google News Initiative (GNI) is our global effort to enable a sustainable, diverse and innovative ecosystem of quality journalism. Through rounds of regional funding, the GNI Innovation Challenges will empower news organizations from around the world to demonstrate new thinking in online journalism, better understand their communities and develop new publishing business models. In turn, we share knowledge generated from the projects with the wider industry.
