I recently photographed the presentations of the 2011 Knight Fellows for the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships program. The 2011 Fellows are some of the brightest minds in journalism. Each one were asked during their fellowship at the university to focus on how to bring innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership to a rapidly changing industry.
Before the event, the fellows were given instructions by a Stanford drama professor on how to deliver their presentations and be comfortable on stage.
Each of the fellows gave their ideas on how to pursue journalistic innovations in a presentation titled "Re-Engineering Journalism: 20 Visions from the 2011 Knight Fellows."
Fellows from all over the world gave their presentations...
...and the crowd paid close attention.
After the event...
...there was a meet and greet outside the Cemex Auditorium at the new business school on the Stanford campus.
To learn more about the Fellows presentations and see video clips, check out the Knight Journalism Fellowship Website. They also have a link to more of my photographs of the event on their flickr page.
