This session is sponsored by Visual Journalism for Tiny News Desks

Where do high-production design and data principles break down for a small news team with little time? How do you decide what story format works best under shifting deadlines, with resources stretched thin? This session will take a close look at how a handful of small- and medium-size newsrooms are building visually striking stories -- maps, charts, immersive interactives -- on a shoestring, under deadlines long and short. Whether you're a team of 10 or one, pick up tips, tricks and lessons to take back for your reporting.
