Fake news orbits the planet in an instant on social media. Is the truth keeping pace?
We want to make sure it does. Our global TruthBuzz challenge aims to invent new ways to help verified facts reach the widest possible audience.
We want your creative solutions for taking fact-checking beyond long-form explanations and bullet points. We’re looking for ideas — — from everyone, not just journalists — that turn fact-checking into engaging, visual and interactive stories that are instantly understandable and shareable. We welcome entries in any digital format and in all languages.
What it Takes to Win:
An international panel of judges will select three winners. Submissions will be evaluated based on the originality of the proposal and its potential to help audiences differentiate fact from fiction and spread the word widely. The top three winners will receive cash prizes of $10,000, $5,000 and $2,500 (USD) respectively.
