The Knight Foundation announced on Thursday the eight most recent award winners of its Knight News Challenge on mobile innovation. The eight recipients – which include Wikipedia and a New York-based nonprofit helping Peruvian residents document the effects of oil drilling and mining in their communities – will receive $2.4 million from the foundation to develop their projects.

“In 2013 the number of Internet-enabled mobile devices is expected to be greater than the number of computers for the first time. These eight Knight News Challenge projects, and the innovators behind them, are helping to stretch the ways people around the world are engaging with information and using it to shape their communities,” Michael Maness, VP for journalism and media innovation at Knight Foundation.
