LA NACIÓN produced a multimedia and multiplatform coverage of the 2013 parliamentary elections with a focus on innovation through database journalism as the fundamental tool to show the contents in a new way and to present the information transparently for the electorate and citizens in general.
To add value to the press coverage and not repeat classical approaches, the 2013 Elections project included the development of different interactive and research pieces using data as the primary source.
These contents were included/ grouped in a specific item of the coverage called The electoral magnifying glass (La lupa electoral). Journalists from both platforms (online/paper) worked on the productions of this category. In fact, many of the works published in this space were generated by editors that were in the Data Journalism Program, a LA NACIÓN special training program for its journalists. The project lasted 6 months. 15 people participated. It was an internal challenge for the company, since it implied the integration and the joint work of the paper and online staff, the LNData team, and the Product and Marketing areas.
