In the last SND annual competition, one thing some of the big winners — from World’s Best “i” in Portugal to the major papers in the United Arab Emirates — had in common was that they employed expats in key visual journalism and/or copy editing positions. If you’ve ever considered an overseas post or are curious about the work being done by expats around the world, this will be a practical look at the potential and the pitfalls, the adventure and the realities of working in a newsroom in a different culture and, sometimes, a different language. See some of the great work being done and hear directly from the people doing that work about their experience as full-time staff members at papers around the world. A brief presentation followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Bill Gaspard. The panelists that will include:
-- Luis Chumpitaz, Information Graphics Director for Al Bayan newspaper and Emirates247.com in Dubai.
-- Adonis Durado, Design Director at The Times of Oman.
-- Matt Martel, Managing Editor, Presentation at The Sydney Morning Herald -- Nick Mrozowski, Creative Director of Adweek magazine
