Category:App Of The Year
Sky News broke new ground in 2019 by adding an array of new storytelling tools to our app. A dedicated graphic designer and data journalist meant we could add context and variation to our stories. We added a home for our our podcast series Storycast. The Shorthand publishing system meant that we could merge text, video, stills and design in ways the industry hasn't seen before. Throughout we held true to two defining principles; a commitment to video, with key moments cut quickly and livestreams embedded; and an unfailing commitment to the content - telling stories in the best way we possibly can.
