PRACTICAL

The two possible events that I could cover for Assignment 3: Writing for Social Media could be:

  1. The Rockhampton Cultural Festival
  2. The City Slide: Rockhampton
  • Rockhampton Cultural Festival

untitled

I plan to cover Rockhampton’s Cultural Festival event. This annual event is held on the 30th of August this year at Rockhampton’s Heritage Village.

At this particular event it is not necessary to get accredited as it is open to the public with a $2 entry. The main parts of the event is the numerous dances and performances by people from countries all around the world.

The people I will try to get a short quote from:

  1. A participant
  2. An attendee
  3. A family

The three main points from Kate’s video, “Why you should plan” are:

  • Time Flies
  • Find your schedule and have a plan for what the main events are
  • Think about accreditation if it is required

For just the small amount of research I have done, there is no need for an accreditation as it is public event.

Overall, for the Rockhampton Cultural Festival I plan on researching the event schedule and see what main events will be appropriate for my storify article.

  • The City Slider: Rockhampton

1D3_5760-400x300

I plan to cover The City Slider: Rockhampton event. This is not an annual event but is the first of its kind coming to the Rockhampton region. It is held on the 3rd of October this year.

At this event it is not necessary to get accredited as it is open to whoever decides to buy a $29 ticket to the event.  The main part of the event is the actual slide, it is a 325m Long Waterslide organised by the City Slider which is touring around Australia.

The people I will try to get a short quote from:

  1. A slider
  2. A organiser/employee/helper
  3. A spectator

The three main points from Kate’s video, “Why you should plan” are:

  • Time Flies
  • Find your schedule and have a plan for what the main events are
  • Think about accreditation if it is required

Overall, for the Rockhampton City Slider I plan on researching more about the reason behind The City Slider.

INQUIRY

Robert Pattinson talks about his new film, The Rover, with Dave O’Neil (POOR NEWS STORY)

While reading this news story it was evident from the start that the article did not flow coherently causing a lot of confusion. This is a poor news story as the main issue was not established from the start and when on for too long.

Therefore, the main issues were:

  • Main issues/topics were not clear.
  • It was long and confusing
  • Sentences did not flow together, jumps from topic to topic

Drought worst in living memory: AgForce Survey (GOOD MEDIA RELEASE)

While reading this media release it was evident that it contains a lot of facts and feedback about the drought. This is a good media release as it contains information about how they plan on dealing with it.

Therefore, what is good about this media release is that:

  • It is clear and concise
  • It includes facts and previous feedback
  • Main issues were clear from the beginning

TECHNICAL

Week 4’s Quiz was fairly easy as the Chapter 4 of the textbook was easy to understand. So, the first attempt’s outcome was 9 out of 10. Upon completing my second attempt the outcome was 10 out of 10.

Therefore, there was no real difficulty involved in this week’s quiz.
