2016 CT Daily Newspapers Association holds Annual Meeting and Election of Officers
Please join us on Tuesday, March 22 at The Traditions Golf Course in Wallingford, CT for our Annual Meeting. The keynote speaker will be Ted Jackson of the Times Picayune in Louisiana.Telling Stories With Power
As journalism continues to evolve, newsrooms are forced to consider and embrace new tools and approaches. But with ever-expanding platforms, readers can’t get enough of great photojournalism. Opportunities are broader than ever before. New media. New medium. It’s all about finding the balance and forging ahead without fear.
And to excel, journalists need to continually learn new skills: from shooting a simple portrait and developing a cohesive visual storyline in multimedia, finding the heart of a story, committing to the topic and developing trust with subjects. Demonstrating with his award-winning images and stories of how he got them, photojournalist Ted Jackson will show you his world.
Jackson, who has been with The Times-Picayune for over 30 years, has covered Hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill and life in Cuba. He was part of a four-person team that won a Pulitzer Prize for public service for “Oceans of Trouble,” a comprehensive look at the impending collapse of the world’s fisheries. Through the years, he has covered the physical destruction and emotional trauma of earthquakes and hurricanes, most notably, Hurricane Katrina. For their coverage of Hurricane Katrina, The Times-Picayune staff won a Pulitzer for public service and another for breaking news. Panel discussions will also be held.
