How Would You Improve Democracy?


Last week, the MacArthur Foundation and the Illinois Humanities Council (IHC) launched Looking@Democracy, a digital media challenge and “national competition offering a total of $100,000 in prize money for short, provocative media submissions designed to spark a national conversation about why government is important to our lives, or how individuals and communities can come together to strengthen American democracy.” Submissions will be accepted through April 30, 2013 and you can find full challenge rules and submission information here.

…MacArthur seeks to stimulate discussion about the future of the Republic and invests in promising ideas to help enhance democratic ideals, institutions, and practices.

The challenge invites artists, students, designers, writers, developers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers and others to become engaged citizens and submit their ideas (in any digital media format) for how we can build a better nation.
