Getting stories in front of the audience is the first step, but keeping them engaged will make sure they come back. The opening session looked at how to achieve this through visual mobile journalism, interactive tools, immersive long-form articles and new community insights.
Shorthand are the latest sponsor of news:rewired
We’re delighted to announce Shorthand, a platform for the creation of interactive storytelling, as the latest sponsor of Journalism.co.uk’s digital journalism conference news:rewired.
Shorthand, which aims to simplify the process of producing full-impact multimedia stories, is working on building a public tool which is “currently in private beta”. It has, however, already worked with a number of news outlets, including first the Guardian and just this month ESPN.co.uk for their end-of-year look back at key sporting moments.
At news:rewired Ben Fogarty, executive manager of Shorthand, will take part in a workshop looking at how journalists can produce immersive stories on digital platforms.
The event agenda is available online, and tickets are still on sale for either £130 +VAT for conference-only, or £220 +VAT for news:rewired+, which includes the conference and a three-hour practical workshop the following day.
