Visual Communications: The Future of PR

Professional Development Workshop Set 6

Tuesday, Oct. 14, 8–9:15 a.m.

Room: Virginia C

Track: Specialization

Hosted by the Entertainment and Sports Section.

Words have been the primary tool of PR pros for decades, but that’s all changing. Today, consumers and mobile audiences are responding to images more than text — visual proof through pictures is becoming the credibility factor on social media, and graphics are becoming the norm for explaining data. Examine case studies that demonstrate how a picture can truly be worth 1,000 words. Also, gain insights into the subtle legal ramifications of visual communications, and acquire knowledge about the types of elements and resources needed to create a dynamic visual communications campaign.
