European e-Inclusion Awards – possible funding for journalism ideas?

Journalists looking for ways to fund innovative uses of technology might want to try the inaugural European e-Inclusion Awards. The Awards aim to “celebrate the best and most imaginative uses of Information and Communications Technology to reduce digital and social exclusion.” This may not scream ‘journalism’ but I think there is potential there for some innovative editorial- and community-driven ideas.

There are seven competition categories:

– Ageing Well
– Marginalised Young People
– Geographic Inclusion
– Cultural Diversity
– Digital Literacy
– e-Accessibility
– Inclusive Public Services

Entries close on the 12th September 2008. More info at http://www.e-inclusionawards.eu
