Visual journalism: tips and trends at the next World Editors Forum

Alberto Cairo, the Infographics editor at El Mundo in Spain, proudly calls his graphics team "the best professionals on the globe." He is willing to back up his claim. "Have a look at our work, " he says, "I look forward to your opinion." View the work here. Jeff Goertzen, the Infographics Editor at the St. Petersburg Times in the United States, is also one of the best. A portfolio of his work can be found here. Mr Cairo and Mr Goertzen are certainly among the most interesting graphic designers working today. Along with Peter Espina, the Infographics Editor of the China Daily, who was previously the Art Director for the Hong Kong Standard and the Far Eastern Economic Review, and Katie Ratcliffe, the Asia Pacific Manager for Graphics for Agence France-Presse, they will share their views about the role of visual journalism during the 12th World Editors Forum, to be held in Seoul, Korea, from 29 May to 1 June. Infographics lure young readers and it is now a major asset for some newspapers. The goal of this session is to give editors tips and trends about the new infographics wave.

The designers will participate in a session on "Visual Journalism: infographics at the cutting edge," at the World Editors Forum, the annual global event focused on editorial issues and strategies. Hundreds of chief editors and other senior newsroom executives are expected to participate in the Forum, which runs concurrently with the 58th World
Newspaper Congress and Info Services Expo 2005. The events are the global meetings of the world's press, drawing more than 1,000 newspaper executives
to a unique annual gathering.
