Philadelphia Enterprise Reporting Fund award winners announced

with one comment

The Philadelphia Enterprise Reporting Awards, a program initiated this year and managed by J-Lab, with funding from the William Penn Foundation, have been awarded to 14 local journalism projects.  From the J-Lab release:

“Fourteen in-depth reporting ideas will get underway soon in Philadelphia with $5,000 awards from an innovative program to help news organizations collaborate on discrete enterprise reporting projects, J-Lab announced today.

“The Philadelphia Enterprise Reporting Awards, funded by the William Penn Foundation, originally aimed to fund 10 projects. However, the foundation is supplying additional funding to issue 14 awards because of the range of good ideas submitted. The winners will launch their projects over the next six months.

“We expect these awards to foster in-depth journalism on topics that need additional coverage and to demonstrate what’s possible when news organizations collaborate,” said Feather Houstoun, president of the foundation.

“The depth and breadth of the ideas submitted were impressive,” said Jan Schaffer, director of J-Lab, which administers the program. “And it’s clear the proposal process got new-media and old-media makers talking to one another about partnering on the projects.”
