Local news innovation showcase
So often the most celebrated examples of innovation in digital, visual and interactive journalism come from teams with uncommon access to resources and talent. You know the ones: The New York Times, The Washington Post, any number of digital-first startups — often on the coasts — that continually set the industry standard for digital innovation.
This panel isn't about those newsrooms. Instead, it will showcase the creative digital storytelling happening in local and regional newsrooms, where time and resources are scarce. The panel will be framed as a series of short talks and examples and will include an ability for local journalists who cannot attend NICAR to present their work as well.
