Goal: AMAZE ME.
Create a compelling, professional level web feature on the Delsea Drive. You are looking for a story with characters, action, and motivation. You must be able to answer the question: Why is this story? Why is this a story that should be published now? Why is it compelling and worth sharing online?
You pick the media elements based on the story and what are the most compelling ways to present your story. You can use text, photos, audio, photo essay, audio slide show, video, map, or graphics.
You can work solo or in a team. If you have a team project, find a partner and let me know.
Your final feature should demonstrate what you have learned and skills you have gained in Online Journalism 1 and 2.
-Quality of reporting (Did you go somewhere, meet people, and find a compelling story? All stories must include original reporting – you go somewhere, you talk to people, you learn something new)
-Quality of text or media
-Quality of editing and presentation
-Appropriate IDs of people. Full names, age, occupation or position, location.
-Strength of profile or story. Is there an anecdote? Is there is a moment of reflection? Is this worth publishing and sharing?
-Files submitted in proper format (details TK)
