Hack the future of journalism online.
Mozilla, Knight, and the Guardian host a design jam in London

May 28, 10am - 5pm, Kings Place

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, and The Guardian, on May 28 for an all-day brainstorm and design jam about the future of journalism online.

Qualify directly for a yearlong paid fellowship at the Guardian, the BBC 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. 

Beer and pizza included.
