Our 2016 selections—celebrated at our annual Media Impact Forum—span a range of interactive techniques, participatory reporting, physical installations, and personalized digital experiences. Through a partnership with OVEE, , we’ll conduct interviews with Bayete Ross Smith, one of the artists who produced Question Bridge; Elaine Sheldon, director, producer and editor of the interactive documentary Hollow; and Jon Swaine, reporter at The Guardian, producer of the interactive website The Counted. We’ll show clips of the projects so you can experience the innovative ways these interactive technologies impact society, and engage in an online chat with all of you.
