Reynolds Journalism Institute Student Innovation Competition
What:  The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute is hosting a student development competition that allows interdisciplinary U.S. college students to come together to develop an app, prototype, program that could solve a journalism challenge. This year’s challenge is to create a program, tool or prototype for photo, video or audio verification. Deep fake videos, fabricated photos and audio are among the biggest challenges the news industry faces. Lawmakers have considered legislation against false images, but how long will it take for policies to be implemented and will they be able to solve the problem?
Who:  This year’s competition is open to  all U.S. college students . Typically teams come from various backgrounds including computer science, journalism and business. This year there must be at least one journalism or communications student on the team. 
Where:  Develop the idea from your school or university. If your team is selected as a finalist, you would come to the Missouri School of Journalism on Sat. Feb. 8 to present in front of a panel of industry judges and the public. 
When:  Students who plan to enter the competition have the next three months to build their tool, prototype or program.
Why:  1. Chance to win up to $10,000 in prize money
          2. Looks good on your resume.
          3. Your finished prototype could turn into a future business opportunity. 
How:  Find out more about the prizes, entry rules, eligibility requirements, contact info for all of your questions, as well as the judging criteria and timeline here: .
