Fact-checking organizations and teams of journalists, designers, developers or data scientists can apply for funding.

The Poynter Institute's International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) has launched Fact Forward, a call for innovative fact-checking projects.

Entries must represent a paradigmatic innovation for fact-checkers in any of these areas: formats, business models or technology-assisted fact-checking.

Applicants must hail from a fact-checking organization that is a signatory of the IFCN code of principles or commit to complying with the code’s application and verification process by the end of the term.

The winner will receive US$50,000 as well as advice for the 12-month development and implementation stage.

The deadline is Feb. 5.
