#newsHACK II – Dublin & Glasgow, May 2014

In a frantic year of News Labs’ activity & growth, I have neglected to cover off the great #newsHACK 2 event we held on May 1st & 2nd this year – about 8 weeks ago!

We held the event simultaneously, linked via live video by BBC R&D’s StageBox, in Dublin and Glasgow.

The LiveBlog can be seen here, featuring updates and media from both venues.

24 teams took part, and you can see the final 22 prototypes on HackerLeague here, and the Winners here.

The Times & FT teams Рthe winners from #newsHACK II Dublin & Glasgow respectively Рwent on to win 1st and 2nd prize at the GEN #EditorsLab Finals in Barcelona, against the winners from some 13 other #EditorsLab events globally during the 2013-2014 season.

Evangeline, the GEN #EditorsLab programme manager, said the “the level of quality from #newsHACK was really high”.

Good luck to Nathalie Malinarich, Dima Jarkas and Sam French next year when they take their “BBC News team” place in the 2014-15 #EditorsLab finals!!
