TruthBuzz: The Viral Fact-Checking Contest


Fake news orbits the planet in an instant on social media. Is the truth keeping pace? We want to make sure it does. Our global TruthBuzz challenge aims to invent new ways to help verified facts reach the widest possible audience.

We want your creative solutions for taking fact-checking beyond long-form explanations and bullet points. We’re looking for ideas --- from everyone, not just journalists -- that turn fact-checking into engaging, visual and interactive stories that are instantly understandable and shareable.

To help you hone your ideas, ICFJ will host a webinar soon. The webinar will focus on best practices for creating well-sourced, viral content and tips for creating a competitive entry. The time and date of the webinar will be announced shortly.

For more information on what we're looking for and to apply, please visit TruthBuzz: The Viral Fact Checking Contest page on Medium for updates.

Application deadline: June 30
