If you can answer that question — via a video — then this is for you.
The Shorenstein Center at Harvard’s Kennedy School is calling on aspiring journalists, filmmakers and media consumers to help them think about the future of news. Create a video of no more than two minutes that answers the question, “What is the future of news?”
The winner gets $2,000 plus an awesome weekend at Harvard, attending the 25th anniversary gala of the Shorenstein Center.
But beware, the judges are tough: they include Rick Kaplan, former CBS, MSNBC, and CNN executive, now EP of “This Week with Christiane Amanpour,” and Mark Whitaker, the former Newsweek and NBC News executive, now EVP and ME at CNN.
