AAJA-Asia Google Digital Award PANEL: How They Did It


The core of good journalism has been, and always will be the same: tell a compelling story, and do it accurately and creatively. Technology has not changed this core, but what it has done is open up new ways for journalists to tell stories. This panel will spotlight some of Asia’s best digital journalism.

The stories are as remarkable for their creativity as their technical prowess: they use everything from video, interactive maps, and even Google Glass to present powerful, thought-provoking, and empathetic stories.
