The Guardian’s Reading the Riots project won the Innovation of the Year award that time around, but news reaches us that the second screen app has been shortlisted for a digital media award at the One World Media awards 2013.We built the second-screen app for the Channel 4 documentary series last year as part of a 26-episode pilot, with fellow Newcastle company Standing Stone delivering the content. It allowed the show’s viewers to pick up more detail on issues, give their views on real-time polls, and share on social networks. We produced a blogpost last year on what we’d learned from the project.
One World Media is a charity which celebrates people that bring the world closer through the media. It’s celebrating its 25th year in 2013. Nominees from the shortlist will be announced in mid-March, and the winners will be revealed at a ceremony in May. Good luck to everyone shortlisted.
