  • 140journos, is an Istanbul-based Turkish media publisher that produces and publishes visual stories, documentaries and qualified research. It was founded by Engin Önder who became disenchanted with the state of Turkish media on January 19, 2012. Önder, who started a grassroots citizen journalism movement, was later chosen as “the man transforming journalism in Turkey” by TIME Magazine in 2015. Following a comprehensive revamp and repositioning, 140journos transformed itself from a citizen journalism organization to a professional new media publisher that got popular among young generation with its own unique creative style in journalism with the creative lead of Berkant Akarcan, creative director at 140journos. 140journos produces original documentaries that include in-depth interviews on various political, social, economic issues by merging cinematographic storytelling with journalistic content. In addition to its popular new-age documentaries, 140journos publishes political articles, e-books, organizes online/offline debate groups and develops open-source mobile/web applications that enable citizens to further engage with politics through technology. Today, 140journos has 1.5 million followers across YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and employs 20 full-time employees consisting of senior and junior journalists, researchers, editors, video editors, creative directors and art directors. 81% of the followers are aged 18-34, which shows that 140journos is a major news outlet followed by millenials. As an R&D experiment in journalism in the new media age through creative interventions, free interfaces and tools, 140journos finds new ways for free expression. 140journos has not only been producing content but also has developed a sustainable business model through methods like advertising production for brands, content licensing, donations and ticketed entertainment shows that bring spotlight to journalistic content for more than 8 years in a country like Turkey, where difficulty of conducting free press activities has been recognized to be one of the hardest in the world. 140journos' innovative approach to journalism has made them the subject matter of many case studies that have been conducted by prestigious institutions such as the Nieman Lab for Journalism. Zeynep Tüfekçi also devoted a portion of her book, “Twitter and Tear Gas” which is about protests in the age of social media, to inform the readers on how 140journos uses social media to disseminate news.
