You’re receiving this inaugural issue because you expressed interest in being part of the Journalism 360 community — a global network of storytellers accelerating the use of immersive storytelling in news. This newsletter is a biweekly digest of curated resources, stories and updates from the immersive journalism space. You can unsubscribe anytime.

Register for the Journalism 360 Unconference

You’re invited to the first Journalism 360 Unconference! Meet us July 24-25 in New York City for a unique gathering of creators, producers, newsroom leaders and technologists working on immersive storytelling.

The event will showcase projects funded by last year’s Journalism 360 Challenge and encourage participants to exchange learnings and collaborate on new ideas. Join us on Tuesday, July 24 to see demos and meet immersive storytellers, and on Wednesday, July 25 for a full day of inspiring conversations on immersive storytelling and journalism. You will hear from 2017 Challenge winners — including the team behind the Pulitzer Prize winning feature “The Wall” — and industry thought leaders as we explore applications of 360 video, augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality in news.
