Looking for multimedia judges

The New England Associated Press News Editors Association (NEAPNEA) is holding a multimedia contest and conference this September in Concord, NH.  Region One of the National Press Photographers Association will be helping sponsor the event and will be providing a speaker or two.

So – I am looking for a photo department or similar group of people to do some multimedia judging for the contest. Obviously – being located outside of New England is a requirement.

There are only about two dozen entries – which can be accessed via URLs. The judging and some brief comments on the winners would need to be done by the end of August.

Let me know by email or comment below if you have interest.

    I’m interested but photography isn’t my core thing, not like you and Annette. Global e-marketing campaigns is, though.

    @Will – thanks – much appreciated.

    @Jody – I wish I had a PR campaign we needed judged. You would be perfect! 🙂

    Have been pondering the very same issue this week. There’s such a fine line between ‘optimisation’ and ‘selling’.

    The arts of SEO and search engine marketing are being employed to different degrees by online newspapers here in the UK (just wrote something about the ethical issues around buying keywords – http://www.journalism.co.uk/2/articles/532081.php). While tabloid style headlines might bring higher search rankings are you compromising your content by doing so?

    Hmmm, I’m not really answering your questions just adding more…

    I don’t think it’s pandering though – on one hand, if you’re content is optimised for search engines then you’re better serving those readers who access it indirectly. Helping them find you content isn’t pandering.

    Laura –

    I don’t think what we went with was pandering. But the guilt there is – did we leave some readership on the table by not going more tabloid with it. We are definitely not a tab – but building online readership certainly raises these newsroom questions more than it used to.
