Small media companies subsidy

In line with its mission to support editorial excellence, the Google News Initiative will again subsidize certain award entrants — for 2022, the focus is on small media companies. Any media outlet with a maximum of 20 full-time staff in total, of which at least 50% are full-time editorial staff, can apply for this subsidy (please see the FAQs for more information). Each small media outlet can claim the subsidy for up to two entries, paying only HKD$200 (US$25) for each entry. There’s a cap on the subsidy so please apply early. You do not need to be a SOPA member. Once your nomination letters and entries are ready, email us at sopa@hku.hk with the Entries’ unique reference code and we will be in touch! Please DO NOT PAY until you hear from us.
