Forty secondary school students were recently invited to the Straits Times newsroom, to see what goes on behind the scenes in news production.
These students were drawn from among more than 300 participants of N.E.mation!, an annual inter-school digital animation competition which centres on total defence. The organiser of the N.E.mation! competition is Nexus, the Ministry of Defence department responsible for total defence and national education.
The invited students were shown around the newspaper’s video production and photo studio and its newsroom, with the final stop being Singapore Press Holdings’ (SPH) creative and content marketing unit Sweet.
The students listened to presentations by journalists, including Mrs Rebecca Pazos, an ST interactive graphics journalist who gave a talk on how visuals have become integral to newsmaking.
