Nonprofit Journalism: Survival of the Scrappiest - SXSW Interactive 2013 by SXSW published on 2013/03/12 00:07:55 +0000 As for-profit news organizations struggle to maintain previous levels of reporting, nonprofit news organizations are proliferating to fill the gap in coverage. These new nonprofit media outlets are experiencing the same problems that longtime nonprofit publications such as The Texas Observer have been tackling for years. (The Observer, a scrappy, watchdog magazine, was founded in 1954.) Learn how longtime and new nonprofit journalism organizations have managed to win grants for longform, investigative journalism while developing a community of engaged supporters. The panel, including representatives from the Observer and other nonprofit journalism outlets, will explore how to produce high-quality, high-impact work on the cheap and get noticed.
