Half of the tickets for the next Build The News have now gone. If you haven’t got yours yet, sign up your team today.
Here are some ideas of what you can tackle and build on the day.
Interaction. A lot of news organisations are getting rid of comments – can you come up with a better way to engage readers?
Social sources. Traditionally crediting user-generated content has not worked as well as we believe it should – can you create a system that solves this problem and serves both publisher and content-creator well?
Context. It can be difficult to get up to speed with a topic that suddenly becomes big news. Build something that gives the reader the context around stories and explains the wider situation.
These aren’t strict categories, and you’re welcome to do a project that isn’t similar to these, but they’re there to give you guidance and spark ideas.
