The Knights Foundation and National Endowment for the Arts announced yesterday an eight-city "competition seeking new models for local arts journalism in the digital age." Oh, you can get $100K if they like your ideas.

Philadelphia is among those eight cities which "is another vote of confidence in Philadelphia as a leader in both cultural innovation and journalism. We are proud to be chosen, and I am confident that, as a city, we will rise to the challenge and come up with some breakthrough solutions," said Tom Kaiden, president of the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.

There's an Aug. 18 deadline for applications. Good luck.
