TOP (Team on-site production) competitions took place during a three-hour period on Saturday, March 3, at the 2018 convention. All teams had to produce their packages during the three-hour time period based on a prompt and from materials gathered at the SIPA convention. Click on the links to view the full packages each team produced.

Broadcast

Broadcast teams were asked to create a feature package based on the following prompt:

“Time to hit the streets for a “Man on the Street”! Find a person or persons (a fellow SIPA attendee, a business owner, a group of musicians) you do not know and tell their story in a 1:30-3 minute personality profile or news feature. Make sure they are not from your school and their story has some human interest value. Ask the right questions, get relevant B-roll and get a secondary source or two.”

Literary Magazine

Literary magazine teams were asked to write, edit, create and draw inspiration to craft artistic interpretations and content for a magazine spread from the following prompt:

“Deckle Edge: South Carolina’s Literary Festival embraces diverse and emerging types of literature in the state, including social justice poetry, screenwriting, Southern feminist prose and more. Drawing inspiration from the festival, which is free and held at the Richland Public Library create a magazine spread that tells a story about pride in differences and diversity – whether through cultures, voice, style or otherwise. Your spread should include both written (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, monologue) and visual (art, photography, mixed media) elements.”

Newsprint

Newsprint teams were asked to write, edit and design a single page (broadsheet or tabloid size) or spread based on the following prompt:

“Take an issue in the news and localize it for a high school audience. Examples include food sustainability, #MeToo movement, fake news, education, immigration, diversity and representation, etc. You can focus on how student journalists are covering this issue, how students are tackling this issue as individuals/a group or how a specific individual is affected by/is involved in this issue (a la personality feature). If you do a story on an individual, make sure this is not someone you know and is not someone you know.”

Photography

Photography teams were asked to write captions, edit photos and create a gallery of at least eight photos (four from each member) based on the following prompt:

REFECTION – meaning refreshment of mind, body & spirit. Tell a story using refection as your inspiration. For your photos, consider including different elements of your story. While the elements do not necessarily have to be sequential, you might want to utilize one or more of the following strategies for your photo story: A. Beginning/middle/end, B. Wide/medium/close up, C. A variety of subjects (all related to the story), D. A variety of composition rules.”

Yearbook

Yearbook teams were asked to write, edit and design a spread based on the following prompt:

“Take an issue in the news and localize it for a high school audience. Examples include food sustainability, #MeToo movement, fake news, education, immigration, diversity and representation, etc. You can focus on how student journalists are covering this issue, how students are tackling this issue as individuals/a group or how a specific individual is affected by/is involved in this issue (a la personality profile).
