Journalism is not a static craft. Technology, reader habits and the sort of adventurism that’s synonymous with the Internet have released the media from text-and-photo storytelling. With audio, video and custom interactive templates we can change the ways we tell stories -- not only present them better but do so to suit readers’ preferred method of enjoying them. Ultimately though, multimedia journalism is still journalism, and the goal is always to tell a good story.
In 2013, The Globe and Mail published several multimedia features on a range of subjects from drug wars in Mexico to the effect of wind current on a knuckleball. We’ve clipped a selection of our favourites ones here and share them again as our best multimedia stories of 2013.
