Localore Picks Feature Crowdsourced Docs, Collaborative Reporting, and Gaming for Good
Today, the Association of Independents in Radio (AIR) announced the winners of the Localore competition, a $2 million initiative designed to expand public radio and TV stations' capacity to innovate and reach new publics.
"The winning proposals include several crowdsourced reporting projects," reports Karen Everhart of Current, "an interactive website on the North Dakota oil boom that is both personalized and data-driven, and an alternate-reality game for high-school seniors....A core objective for Localore media, as AIR Executive Director Sue Schardt says, is to 'go outside' the station’s traditional audience and core broadcast service, using digital media to innovate new concepts for community service."
Primarily funded by CPB, Localore is also supported by the MacArthur Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Wyncote Foundation.
