Innovation Challenge: new regions open for applications

Selected Projects

In November 2018, we announced the steps we’re taking as part of the Google News Initiative to fund projects that inject new ideas into the news industry.


We are excited to share the first 23 recipients of the first GNI Innovation Challenge in Asia-Pacific from 14 countries across the region. This funding will enable our partners to develop sustainable business models, with diversified streams of revenue coming from readers, in the era of digital journalism. You can read about some of the projects being funded on our blog.
