Making millions and employing hundreds of staff is still not enough to help Sam Chandler forget the many sleepless nights he spent desperately trying to find a way to save his company that didn't involve firing most of his team. Chandler launched his start-up Adobe rival Nitro in 2005, after spending his teen years watching the dotcom boom and eventual bust from Tasmania, frustrated he wasn't part of the action.
In May we announced the five funding recipients for the 2017 Walkleys Media Incubator and Innovation Fund. These five projects stood out as genuinely exciting and important, despite fierce competition during our intensive online incubator for the top 100 or so projects and then face to face bootcamps for the shortlisted projects. Here’s what the five winning teams did next. They’re only just getting started, but it’s exciting to see them forging ahead.
We have exciting news — longstanding Walkley partner iSentia is investing in a key driver of journalistic innovation: data. The iSentia Prize for Data Innovation in Journalism will be awarded for the first time at the Mid-Year Walkley Awards on July 26, as part of the 2017 innovation funding round. One of the many promising data-centric projects in this year’s incubator will receive $10,000 in funding.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
