Mobile Journalism Competition

Thomson Foundation has once again teamed up with RTE MojoCon Ireland to launch its third mobile journalism competition. Works will be judged by an expert panel who will be looking for a feature story or news report shot and edited entirely on a mobile device, which excites, intrigues and surprises them and demonstrates impact and creativity.

THE COMPETITION

This is an open competition to find the best journalistic example of the use of mobile content production for storytelling. The competition is open worldwide. It would be preferred if entries were in English, however, other languages with on screen subtitles are acceptable. Entrants must create a mobile journalism story, either a feature or TV-style news report with a run time of 2-5 minutes. The most important thing is that the story is shot and edited entirely on a mobile device (iOS, Android, Windows Phone or RIM Blackberry) and that the video content is delivered in high definition. The story must be produced by ONE individual and entries will be marked on the following:

Journalism: Originality and credibility of the story, demonstrating original research, effort and use of interviews.

Impact: Importance of the subject matter and the impact the story has achieved.

Uniqueness to medium: Innovative and appropriate use of mobile recording techniques.

Storytelling: Clarity of the storytelling.

Technical quality: Technical quality of the production.
