Deadline: before next class – say 6 am next Weds.
Coordinators: 1. LISA and 2. CARMEN. These two have the power of approve/veto your CE coverage plans and are in charge of organisation – keeping track/assigning stories/ matching MM elements. Who, how, what, where etc
Lareina is i/c of pix cordination. She’ll message you separately. I’d like to emphasis tho that it is IMPORTANT to upload your pix to the vox-asia Flickr account and TAG them. Include as much information as possible so your colleagues are not left scratching their heads about a pic — and can caption it accurately.
YOU CAN ALSO ADD PIX/GRAPHICS YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO USE EVEN IF YOU DIDN’T PRODUCE THEM YOURSELF.
It is a good idea to note in the Flickr Metadata what the pic has been used for (ie the URL of any story it accompanied etc)

The half of the class who did not produce a first-hand news article — note: not a pick-up, not a backgrounder, not reportage via secondary sources — for the CE package last week must do so.
The other half will address backgrounders/work on further multimedia ways of presenting what we have so far (and can expect to get).
Note: the news article MUST be a multi-media article/effort. Team work (max 3) is permitted. Overlap is not permitted.
You will need to find out where and when events are being held and get yourselves down to cover it/them.
Coordinators: 1. XXX and 2. xxxx (tba). These two have the power of approve/veto your CE coverage plans.
Please remember: If a picture is worth running ….. (finish off this cliche) …
These items must be of publication quality in an organ as august as the NYT or TOL and MUST comply with the style guide.
Suggestion: Each article needs an accompanying photo — but there is no reason that one team cannot also produce a photo gallery of items that might be of use to another team. You get CREDIT for cooperation — this isn’t a zero-sum exercise.
