We’ve been hyping this Challenge for weeks– a search for original, web-accessible pieces that use Global Integrity data to speak to an issue you care about. We are happy to report that students, journalists and activists from across the globe took us up on the challenge, submitting pieces that provide fresh perspectives on issues of public note.
Here are just a few examples:
— From Ghana, we received an interview-based piece highlighting Ghana’s murky political financing regulations.
— From India, a blog post analyzing why the Indian Anti-Corruption Commission remains largely ineffective.
— From Russia, an entry on how journalists from the city of Penza are spreading their unique legal model to protect the freedom of expression for small, regional media outlets across the country.
— From Belgium: a reflection piece (in French) on the work of migrant woman’s collective to develop a language and vocabulary to express their migrant experience.
… stay tuned to the Commons as we will be featuring more Mashup Challenge entries throughout the week.
We want to send out a big congratulations to all who entered and to those who helped to promote the Mashup Challenge! Our judges will be hard at work this week, reading through all the entries and scoring them based on our criteria of usefulness, reliability, depth and innovation (with extra points for outreach).
We expect to release the names of the winners this coming Friday, April 23.
Do you have an analysis piece of your own, but didn’t quite make the Mashup Challenge deadline? Feel free to contact us. We are always happy to host original content.
