Do you have ideas for how news and journalism can be edgier, cooler, and more interactive online? Are you a web developer? A designer? A news junkie with a hankering to hack?  

If so, join Mozilla, Knight Foundation, & The BBC on June 1 for a brainstorm and design jam about the future of journalism online.

Qualify directly for a yearlong paid fellowship at the BBC, Guardian, and other major news outlets by entering your idea during the jam.

Team up with innovative peers and build prototypes that help journalists take advantage of the open web and engage with citizens in new ways.
