The First Editors Lab in Australia

On March 3-4 2016, the Global Editors Network (GEN) and The Walkley Foundation, with the support of Google, gathered some of the best Australian media innovators in Sydney for a two-day Editors Lab focused on developing innovative news prototypes.

The theme was “Data-driven Stories: Find or tell stories with data”, covering data hacks and visualisations.

The winning project was "BEAT: A real-time visualisation of breaking news" created by the team from The West Australian (see below).
