Open Media Challenge, September, Bucharest

July 5, 2012 in Data Journalism, Events, External, Sprint / Hackday,
WG EU Open Data

The Open Media Challenge (OMC) is a two-day event, laying the
groundwork for improving data journalism in Eastern Europe. The aim is
to write code for free software which will solve real-world media
problems around data aggregation and visualization. It will be a
collaborative effort focused on Eastern European information
collection and dissemination, and will be conducted in English
language.

Coders, Designers, Journalists and Activists who want to team up and
play with data on a specific issue, can submit their proposal using
our submit form. The call for proposal starts today and is open until
14th of July.

The main event will take place in Mid September in Bucharest – more
details coming soon. It’s going to include an Open Hackday, as well as
Code Review, International e-Jury and Celebration day. Check out next
steps, proposal list, and other event-related news, on the FAQ page.

The event is funded by Knight-Mozilla Open News, and was initiated by
the Sponge Media Innovation Lab for Eastern Europe. The organizers are
CRJI, geo-spatial.org, Ceata, ROSEdu and ApTI.
