The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) launched the TruthBuzz contest to stimulate creative solutions for taking fact-checking beyond long-form explanations and bullet points. The contest is looking for ideas  —  from everyone, not just journalists —  that turn fact-checking into engaging, visual and interactive stories that are instantly understandable and shareable.

Entries are accepted in any digital format and in all languages.

The first-place winner will receive a cash prize of US$10,000. After the contest closes, ICFJ will showcase all of the entries on a public site where the global truth-telling community can learn from and use these fact-check storytelling strategies.

To help you hone your ideas, ICFJ hosted a webinar focusing on best practices for creating well-sourced, viral content and tips for creating a competitive entry.

Please submit your entries by Friday, June 30.
