Vine Journalism Awards showcases the best examples of 6-second news

3
The best examples of journalism on Vine we awarded last week at Twitter's NYC office.

In its first year, Vine has made quite a name for itself. Now, the app has its own Vine Journalism Awards. What is six second video journalism? According to my old photojournalism professor, it's an oxymoron. But to the folks at journalist tweet aggregator Muck Rack, it's something worth celebrating. 

At an event in Twitter's New York City office last week, journalists and media professionals came together to spoplight the best examples of Vine as a journalism tool. Winners included Daniel Wein's coverage of racing interns running to report the ruling of the Supreme Court on the Defence of Marriage Act ruling, Christian Lindner's video of a paraglider in Germany, and Zoe Fox's Vine of a man who had suffered from Polio riding a bicycle. Unable to pick a favorite breaking news video, the Vine Journalism Awards judges gave awards to each of the three finalists—Omar Villafranca, Doug Lorman, and NowThis News.

Give me a break! If you have to resort to skipping frames to report a news, you might as well not report at all.

I can't wait until the web further reduces everyone's attention span to two seconds. Then a regular vine could be a three night mini-series.
