Hearst + Adobe + RJI = Winning Ideas

Hearst Corporation, Adobe and the Reynolds Journalism Institute housed at the school jointly sponsored a student competition to produce interactive applications that solve real-world needs in the advertising and news-gathering sides of the journalism industry.

For the competition, Missouri journalism students worked on teams with computer science students, using Adobe products to create programs that addressed key media business challenges identified by Hearst. The winning students were flown to Adobe’s San Francisco offices to present their project to Adobe executives. The Missouri journalism students later went to Shanghai, China, to join students from Fudan University who took part in a parallel contest. The winning students also showcased their projects at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai.
