This year we saw the first VR Journalism prize at the World VR Forum Annual Summit. The prize is an initiative by the World VR Forum and WAN-IFRA’s Global Alliance for Media Innovation (GAMI). This panel will reflect over the state of the art in immersive journalism and new forms of interactive narratives. Immersive journalism provides creative content with either a strong narrative, documentary, long story, interactive story or immersive experience. It has the power to transform the user from a passive to a participating and immersed news consumer.
We will discuss the needs and challenges of the industry and their new take on journalism using AR/VR/MR.
