Editors Lab in New York
On 5-6 May 2017, the Global Editors Network (GEN) and Mic, with the support of Parse.ly, gathered some of the best media innovators from the region in New York City for a two-day hackathon to develop innovative news prototypes on the theme of audience engagement.
The winning team was the team from National Geographic, with their project: Counting Up.
Public's choice went to National Geographic too.
All the projects developed during the Mic Editors Lab in New York are listed here.
Theme: Audience engagement
How can we better understand and expand the communities our news serve? In tackling this theme, you might prototype tools to better listen, understand and connect with specific audiences. Perhaps you’re seeking to engage with those left out of mainstream coverage; maybe you'd like to find a way to break through the filter bubble and engage audiences across ideological lines.
You can contact Sarah Toporoff (stoporoff[at]globaleditorsnetwork.org) from GEN with your interest.
