Football section exchange 2010

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Toby Carrig, Aug 22, 2010.

    Newspapers that wish to participate in the third annual exchange of football preview sections can do so by contacting me at tcarrig@avpress.com or PM through the sportsjournalists.com website.
    In each of the last two years, about 20 newspapers of various market sizes participated in the exchange. By sending in copies of your section, you get to check out the work of some other papers, which usually includes some APSE award-winning special sections.
    It's a good way to see what other papers are doing and get some inspiration for future special sections.
    Basically, here’s how it works:
    Those who agree to participate can send me about 20 copies of their football special sections by Sept. 21.
    In return, those who participate will receive 20 different editions.
    Can’t scrape up 20? That’s OK, you can still be included and receive the number back that you send in.
    I will update the list of participating papers on this thread.
    I also will send out shipping instructions as soon as I figure out if I want boxes of papers in my home or my office.
    The goal will be to mail sections back out to everyone in early October.
    The more the merrier!

    Is there an online only version of one of these?

    I am working with three websites covering HS football. It would be nice to see what other websites are doing with their football coverage.
    Is there a way to set up a way to share online ideas and sites for strictly online products?

    as a past participant, I can vouch for the value of this swap. And toby should be commended for taking it on himself to coordinate it.

    An update.
    The papers below have been received so far (one in a place I used to work, but I will get that ironed out in the next 7 days). Planning to do the mixing and matching the weekend of Oct. 2 and send them out shortly after that.
    I may be getting a couple more, I believe.
    But if you see something on this list you might already have because your paper is in close proximity or you already exchanged with that paper, let me know and I will make a note of it. No guarantees, since this ended up being about 15 more papers than last year, which is a good thing, but I will do my best to honor those requests.
