These 10 winners were chosen from 250 digital projects that were received.
30 projects were pre-selected to participate in a hackathon in Casablanca and Beirut in July. These events served as a full-scale test of the viability of the projects. The teams, made up of journalists, web developers, graphic designers and designers, were pitched against each other in a fun competition to produce and build on the best presentation of their project.
Support was provided to the teams by media, web, communication and entrepreneurial professionals.

A second call for projects will take place before the end of 2018 with a view to selecting 10 new projects.

D-Jil is run by a consortium of partners with the following members: CFI (France), Fondation Samir Kassir (Lebanon), IREX Europe (France), FMAS (Morocco) et Leaders of Tomorrow (Jordan) and is co-financed by Union européenne.
