Segregation One was definitely my favorite article from the awards. The use of the colors and the design is so attractive to the readers, and convinces them to keep on scrolling down. It has a similar design to that of the ATL 24 Project. As I kept on reading, I felt the change in society on regards to segregation. Throughout the years, progress has been made. Nevertheless, there’s still much to do. The use of graphs and different stories inside the article also help out to spread reliability and attractiveness.
On the other hand, What is Home? is full of emotion. It drives the reader to a state of reflection and tries to put them on the victims' shoes. The use of photos and videos strike the reader to keep scrolling down. The Waiting List topic got me thinking about life. The fact that there are people without houses and without a proper home makes me want to work harder to change that, whichever way I find possible. Just like the Segregation One article above, this article uses graphs to present evidence. The division of chapters creates a friendly way to go around the article and not get lost.
The last article I found interesting was the Earthquake Preparedness in Southern California. I’ve always found earthquakes to be an interesting subject to talk about, and what a better place to base the article than on Los Angeles? The first sentence of the article comes as a shock to all readers, and that’s basically what keeps the reader on their feet and, scrolling down. More than 1,000 buildings in Los Angeles could be at risk of falling apart during a major earthquake. Just reading that sentence makes me desperate to know more. The animation of the building was amazing. As you scroll down, the building goes from normal to collapse. There’s also a map that includes the major areas around Los Angeles that could be affected by major earthquakes. Overall, it is a perfectly done article, and an excellent journalism project.
