Top media trends to watch out for in 2017

Media professionals worldwide can apply for a fellowship in Co­lumbia, Missouri.
The fellowship program, spon­sored by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI), in­vites proposals from people who have innovative ideas to improve the practice or understanding of journalism.
RJI is giving special consider­ation this year to ideas and proj­ects that focus on solving prob­lems created by filter bubbles, fake news and mistrust of the news me­dia.
The institute offers residential, nonresidential and institutional fellowships. Residential fellows spend eight months on the Mis­souri campus, taking advantage of the intellectual and technological resources of RJI and the universi­ty while interacting with Missouri faculty and students. These fellows receive a US$10,000 monthly sti­pend, plus a one-time US$10,000 housing allowance.
Nonresidential fellowships are designed for employees of a news, technology or related company who have ideas they can devel­op while continuing in their jobs. These fellows receive a US$20,000 stipend for the eight-month pro­gram, paid in US$2,500 monthly installments.
The US$20,000 institutional fellowship stipend is paid to the company or institution and can be used to hire a freelancer or tempo­rary contractor to fill in for an em­ployee as needed or for other proj­ect needs.
The deadline is Feb. 1, 2017.
