This is your chance to hear each one present and vote for your favourite. The people’s choice! (where people = sophisticated digital news media professional!)

For many people the potential of native advertising was revealed in the New York Times’s seminal “Women Inmates” branded content campaign for “Orange is the New Black” back in 2014, often described as native advertising’s “Snow Fall” experience.

By using FotoWare, Klambt Verlag has been able to automate their entire editorial workflow, implementing one central editorial system for about 70 different magazines! This way, Klambt can conduct the whole production process in one system and can easily move people around in case a magazine needs additional resources.

The internet, predominantly designed by sighted designers, has an inherent bias toward sighted users.
