Digital News Ventures
Digital News Ventures website was created by Tronvig Group for the Media Development Investment Fund, a unique global organization that is in the business of funding and assisting the healthy development of the fourth estate, particularly in those areas of the world with a history of media operation.
With Digital News Ventures, the Media Development Investment Fund has created a fund for new ventures in the digital news media space. The idea is to seed the ideas that will facilitate the health and continuity of independent journalism as news continues to shift into the digital arena.
For this project, Tronvig Group created a sub-brand and website in 5 languages. The website has served to facilitate the announcement of Digital News Ventures and to take applications for the grants being offered.
If you are a journalist or news organization operating anywhere on the planet and would like some money to get your project or idea off the ground and onto the Internet, visit this website to see if you qualify.
It should be no surprise that the website answers the questions: who, what, when, where, why, and how.
On a technical note, rendering the Russian within the framework proved to be the most difficult.
