We’re in the full festive swing here at Newsworks, celebrating all week with our ‘ad of the year’ competition. Taking inspiration from the World Cup action in Qatar, our knock-out style tournament saw eight fantastic ads whittled down to two. Click here to see which ad has been crowned champion of champions, as well as which lucky voter has won an Apple Watch in our prize draw.
Meanwhile, today we released the last episode in our Future of News series spotlighting journalism’s rising stars. The Independent’s head of multimedia Tom Richell talks about how he was bitten by the journalism bug, how technology is driving the present and future of the newsroom and how a report in Sweden didn’t go quite to plan.
Elsewhere, Christmas appeals, snowball fights and charity clowns are some of the five things you should check out in news brands this week, as well as our stand out ads, updated Christmas ad gallery and more news from news brands below.
Our newsletter is now on a well-earned Christmas break. It’ll be back refreshed and ready to go on 12 January 2023. Have a happy and restful festive season from all the team at Newsworks.
