Judges’ special recognition- Coal: A Love Story

Judge’s Special Recognition for use of video, animated storytelling: Coal: A Love Story

The judges recognize the News21 student project, Coal: A Love Story, for its excellent use of video and motion graphics in this highly visual, explanatory, interactive package. The art direction is seamless, consistent and obsessively curated, on par with professional-level work. The motion graphics, while not terribly innovative, are playful and seeped with subtle animated details that enhance the audio and play off of both the stills and video. The research and reporting has real depth and gravitas. The imagery – both video and photographic – was beautifully observed and flawlessly edited, a standout in the package being Born into Coal. The judges applaud the contributing students and editors for their commitment, time and attention given to the production and design of the project, one that has set a new bar for future News21 projects.
