Dispatches app shortlisted by One World Media


A few months ago, the Dispatches second screen app made it to the final of the British Journalism Awards.

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.
