J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism
J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism helps news organizations and citizens use innovative digital media to develop new ways for people to engage in critical public policy issues. It spotlights dynamic news experiences and helps to develop interactive news ideas that not only educate people about public affairs but also invite their participation.
It rewards cutting-edge innovations through the Knight-Batten Award for Innovations in Journalism funded by the Knight Foundation. It spotlights the creative assets of women with the McCormick Tribune New Media Women project. It funds pioneering hyperlocal citizen media ventures through its New Voices project and administers the Knight Citizen News Network and J-Learning sites.
