The Interactive News is a catalog of the best examples of digital journalism from 2008 to 2016. It was compiled by an independent group of academics outside the news industry and is here to serve educators, journalists, and designers. As news media transformed its formats of delivery, we sought to capture the most informative, innovative, and interactive examples. Submissions were selected with the following criteria in mind:
1. The multimedia aspect of the story should enhance the narrative beyond what the text alone could provide.
2. Reader comprehension should be enhanced through interactivity, data visualizations, charts, maps, diagrams, or other visual forms.
3. While many examples in the archive come from mainstream media outlets, we would also like to profile great work from smaller outlets around the world.
4. The overall design, writing, and formatting should strike a balance between informative, engaging, and beautiful.
