You can't judge a book by its cover, but there's no doubt a good cover helps in becoming a bestseller! It's the same with news; even the most ridiculous article can grab attention simply by adding a good picture...
This workshop’s focus is to look at how images are used by the media to sell stories. Why include a picture? What makes a photograph front page worthy? How can images be used to shape reader opinions?
We will also be looking at the art of editorial cartoons from Hogarth to Bell: What can illustrations say that words cannot project? How does humour balance up against outrage?
This event is free and open to anyone interested in the debate. Participant will also be invited to contribute to Captain Spin Dry comic's first edition!
This workshop is part of 'The Alternative Leveson Enquiry', a series of events organised by the Spin Dry Media Cooperative, mentored by www.NOISEfestival.com , and funded by the European Commission’s ‘Youth in Action’ Programme, coordinated in the UK by the British Council.
