SNDMakes — Day 1

#SNDMakes is the Society’s facilitated design-a-thon and prototyping event series born out of a desire to connect old and new media journalists through collaborative problem solving. These events are about community, not competition. In D.C., we’re focused on thinking beyond the slideshow, and driving innovation around visual narratives. Applications are now closed. Find details at bit.ly/SNDMakes_DC. Email questions to: sndmakes [at] gmail.
