Essential Information

Theme: Innovative Sports Journalism

Sports news audiences are passionate, but how can journalists turn that passion into dynamic and innovative sports coverage? How can journalists respond to the trends and opportunities in sports media technology? Can newsrooms leverage the abundance of sports data to develop new storytelling forms? Which types of visual and immersive storytelling could be developed for sports coverage? Can live coverage be richer, faster and more engaging? Could sports journalism become a testing ground to drive innovation in other types of news coverage?
