The Co-operative is offering £5,000 prize money for community-focused projects doing something “revolutionary”, reports Journal Local.
As the Lichfield Blog’s Philip John points out, it’s a great opportunity for hyperlocal sites up and down the country.
As many hyperlocal sites are volunteer-run, not-for-profit groups who are really making a difference in their community this is a great opportunity to really push things forward.
I’ll be applying. Will you?
The Co-operative’s website has full details of how to apply.
Philip will be speaking about hyperlocal and data journalism at Journalism.co.uk’s upcoming news:rewired conference. See the news:rewired site for more info about Philip’s session, plus the full list of confirmed speakers and full agenda.
