From innovative payment models to new forms of presentation, journalism is characterised by the unceasing development of new tools and trends. At scoopcamp 2015 in Hamburg these developments and the associated changes in day-to-day journalism will be discussed, looking at the interface between reporting, programming, and product development. The program for the seventh edition of the media conference, to be held on 1 October, 2015, is now in place.
One of the main speakers at the event, being held in Theater Kehrwieder in the warehouse district, will be Marten Blankesteijn. His digital kiosk, Blendle, recently entered the German market in beta phase. Other speakers will include Thomas Wallner of DEEP Inc. and Natalia Antelava of Coda.
Workshops and plenary discussions
The scoopcamp event is organised and hosted by nextMedia.Hamburg, the media and digital communications sector’s joint local initiative. As in previous years, the conference for media players will consist of a congress in the morning and parallel hour-long workshops during the afternoon.
Up to 300 participants are expected to attend, taking part in small group discussions on the subjects of “Real-time news”, “News distribution”, “Storytelling” and “Collaboration”. Afterwards, the findings from the workshops will be discussed in a further joint session led by two leading representatives of the international media. This year’s scoopcamp will be moderated by Jenni Schwanenberg (dpa-infocom GmbH and next media accelerator).
Impulses for the changing world of journalism
“If you want to shape the digital transformation, you have to promote strategic interaction and communication”, says Carsten Brosda, media representative of the Hamburg state government. “The scoopcamp event is the ideal platform for this, providing an opportunity to guide and stimulate the changing world of journalism as experienced reporters and editors gather with digital innovators.In 2015, these encounters will once again facilitate daring ideas and inspiration and new approaches to journalism.”
Comspot, Deutsche Welle, Google and Zeit Online are co-sponsors of scoopcamp.
