The spread of Cipta Media Bersama grant applications
Press conference announcing the 35 candidates

Two months after being announced, "Cipta Media Bersama", an open grant project funded by the Ford Foundation and supported by three non-profit groups (Wikimedia Indonesia, ICT Watch, and the Indonesian Alliance of Independent Journalists has received 820 grant applications from throughout Indonesia (West Indonesia: 602 applications, Central Indonesia: 190 applications, East Indonesia Timur: 28 applications). Heidi Arbuckle, the Ford Foundation's Media Program Officer, announced in a press conference at the Axmani Hotel Jakarta on September 23, 2011, that the total number of applications was unexpected, and that the committee was greatly pleased by the enthusiasm shown in trying to improve the media.

Proposals received varied heavily in the issues to be addressed, the approach taken, the choice of media, and the point of origin of the request - although Java was dominant, requests from other areas were fairly well spread.

The open media grant program was expected to bring forth new initiatives which could be used as good examples of how to improve the media in Indonesia. From our data on the applications received, we can summarize:

  1. The topics of diversity in the media and equitable access received the most applications, with most targeted at those with disabilities, children, farmers, cultural groups, and human rights victims (totaling 644 applications). The Initial Selection Team drew the conclusion that mainstream media does not fulfill these groups' need for information, with their voices being unheard. Based on the number of applications received, it seems that community media attempts to address these issues.
  2. A critical view was also shown in the topics of media ethics and media watch (totaling 176 applications), with initiatives to increase the variety of content, improve verification and accuracy, as well as the quality of mainstream news; this shows that society is dissatisfied with its current media consumption.

Thirty of the 35 candidates for the USD one million (approximately 8.5 billion rupiah) grant were chosen by the Initial Selection Team, with 5 being chosen by the general public via the internet. The proposal which received the most public support was "Writing to Increase the Indonesian People's Wisdom", with 4415 votes, while the committee chose based on 5 criteria and the locations of the projects.

During the judging process, the Initial Selection Team decided that giving grants would not be enough on its own. As such, we intend to put on some workshops on improving candidates' ability to use media and technology, as well as advocate cooperation between candidates in different areas to build better infrastructure and greater resources.
