Welcome to post-December 2nd. The pace of our posting will slow down as we've a lot of proposals to review over the next month.
We're too early in our review process to share details about what we're looking at. Suffice it to say that we are excited to dive into the proposals and learn more about what you all have been thinking. From a cursory scan of Twitter, Knight Foundation mail boxes and the Open Applications I can say that we've received inquiries from an array of individuals and organizations.
I realize that waiting a month must not be easy after pouring so much energy into articulating your ideas. For those of you who' have applied,' I ask you to be patient. We are not able to answer questions about particular proposals. We will, however, try to share thoughts in coming days about what we're seeing generally in the contest. In particular, expect to hear from Maria Thomas, a Knight Foundation consultant tasked with reading every proposal.
Thanks to everyone who's applied, commented and talked about the Knight News Challenge. 'It was not until last night, as we field questions from Indonesia, Italy and Charlotte, that I appreciated the full reach of the contest. Speaking on behalf of Knight Foundation, and of the reviewers' we've asked to assist us, I can't 'wait for the next few weeks.
