“Calling all UK Northern Interaction Designers and Freelance Journalists”…

I’ve agreed to pass on the following call from Gregory Povey of MELD. Sounds a very worthy attempt to match new media and journalistic expertise:

MELD is a world first project: bringing together the best northern (UK) journalists and new media practitioners to explore what happens when the two worlds collide

Selected talent will be paid to attend a five-day residential lab where they will develop products and pitch them to industry partners. This is a fantastic opportunity to extend industry networks, develop new products and explore new routes to market

Teams will work on real briefs from industry partners, including Simon Bucks, Associate Editor, Sky News Online

Interested? We will announce our other industry partners and tell you more at two swanky evening events:
