On 25-26 November, GEN and FuJo (the Institute for Future Media & Journalism at Dublin City University), with the support of the Google News Lab, gathered top newsrooms from Ireland and the UK in Dublin for an Editors Lab focused on developing new sports journalism prototypes.
And the winners were… The team from BBC, congratulations. Here is a link to their winning project.
A special mention was awarded to the team from TheJournal.ie and the Public Choice went to The Times.
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?
