A three-to-five photo package from a calendared news event or associated with a published news story. Due on the server by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 4.
You can shoot an event that is of interest to the general public but is not entertainment related. Committee or government meetings, speeches or public protests are all acceptable.
The second way to handle this is to localize a national story – choose an on-going issue in society and document that, telling the story through a local angle.
The third option here is to do a spot news package. If you have a scanner, you could listen for news and chase it across the city – fires, crashes, bank robberies, etc. probably the lowest percentage way of handling this assignment, but it is an option for you.
You should be continuing to shoot for your multimedia story as well. Please have a second set of images for your story on the server by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 4, as well.
