Newspaper
Conventions:
Broadsheet
Generic Conventions within Covers
Brief 01: • Brief 01: Newspaper Conventions
• This first brief is a research and production task aimed at giving you the opportunity to develop research and
production skills needed within the production of print media.
• Task 1:
• Create a PowerPoint in which you present your research into the generic conventions of broadsheet newspaper
covers.
• Begin with slide of covers. The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph
• Slide for each conventions. Slide of masthead (typical/conventional for it, fonts, differences (modern etc. to be
different) (do for every feature: lang of headline, images, news values with examples)
• Task 2:
• Create a PowerPoint in which you present your research into the generic conventions of tabloid newspaper covers.
• Same process as Task 1
• Decide whether daily mail and daily express as more tabloid or more broadsheet
• Task 3:
• Based on your research, produce one broadsheet newspaper front cover and one tabloid newspaper cover.
• Original newspaper or copy format of each.
• Look like existing media or break conventions (need a good reason to break these conventions)
• Think about lessons (signs etc.)
• Both covers should contain at least one original image.
• Further details on how to present your research and productions pending update.
• Examples of Broadsheet Covers
• The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph
• Within their conventions
The
Guardian
Masthead: Analysis of style
• Includes the English coat of arms,
emphasising the traditional/conservative
nature of the paper.
• Compared to the other two broadsheets
shown the times uses its coat of arms to
stand out as a traditionalist paper brining
the right audience.
• The font is very academic emphasising,
the viewpoints of the broadsheet as an
intellectual viewpoint.
• Compared to the other two papers the
guardian creates a sense that they are
more intellectual to attract 'intelligent'
readers.
• The use of a generic font, conveys a sense
of relatability for readers making their
newspaper emphasise the important news
inside.
Centre-Right Left-Wing conservative
Language of Headlines
- Slab-serif type face of
Guardian Egyptian, keeping
their headline within
conventions.
- Lower case language with
correct grammar, maintaining
a professional manner.
- Language allows you to
easily understand what
the news will include.
- The Times uses Times New Roman, a
serif font.
- Lower case headlines, within the
conventions with professional
grammatical language.
- Very simple language that is very
informative to instantly get a message
across.
- Uses the serif font of Bell face by Monotype
- Large text on page is capitalised to
emphasise importance and to bring attention
towards it, this breaks Broadsheet paper
conventions. The sub-heading is in lower
case and is smaller, helping bring attention to
the large text initially. The font feels much
stronger than other papers which breaks the
conventions as it makes the newspaper feel
less professional.
- The language of the headline is very
simple to understand the story. However, as
seen in the paper on the left, it is not always
professional.
All these newspapers stay within the generic
conventions on a Broadsheet paper as the
language remains serious and 'straight to the
point'.
Broadsheet headlines tend to possibly be
capitalised, often lower case. In serif fonts
(Times New Roman, Garamond, Baskerville, Georgia,
and Courier New) and include informative
language.
News presented
• All papers report on serious matters impacting their audience/ audience's interest.
However, these responses may be impacted by the newspapers political view.
The Times: Centre-
Right stance
The Guardian: Left-
Wing stance
The Daily Telegraph:
conservative stance
These stories contain significant information for the general
public in the UK. Allowing the readers to remain aware of the
current events that are impacting the world.
The Daily Telegraph may
break these conventions
and report on less serious
news. This may be to
keep readers interested
as when 'making fun' etc.
of someone it tends to fit
the views of the
audience.

BROADSHEET Conventions.pptx

  • 2. Brief 01: • Brief 01: Newspaper Conventions • This first brief is a research and production task aimed at giving you the opportunity to develop research and production skills needed within the production of print media. • Task 1: • Create a PowerPoint in which you present your research into the generic conventions of broadsheet newspaper covers. • Begin with slide of covers. The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph • Slide for each conventions. Slide of masthead (typical/conventional for it, fonts, differences (modern etc. to be different) (do for every feature: lang of headline, images, news values with examples) • Task 2: • Create a PowerPoint in which you present your research into the generic conventions of tabloid newspaper covers. • Same process as Task 1 • Decide whether daily mail and daily express as more tabloid or more broadsheet • Task 3: • Based on your research, produce one broadsheet newspaper front cover and one tabloid newspaper cover. • Original newspaper or copy format of each. • Look like existing media or break conventions (need a good reason to break these conventions) • Think about lessons (signs etc.) • Both covers should contain at least one original image. • Further details on how to present your research and productions pending update.
  • 3. • Examples of Broadsheet Covers • The Times, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph • Within their conventions The Guardian
  • 4. Masthead: Analysis of style • Includes the English coat of arms, emphasising the traditional/conservative nature of the paper. • Compared to the other two broadsheets shown the times uses its coat of arms to stand out as a traditionalist paper brining the right audience. • The font is very academic emphasising, the viewpoints of the broadsheet as an intellectual viewpoint. • Compared to the other two papers the guardian creates a sense that they are more intellectual to attract 'intelligent' readers. • The use of a generic font, conveys a sense of relatability for readers making their newspaper emphasise the important news inside. Centre-Right Left-Wing conservative
  • 5. Language of Headlines - Slab-serif type face of Guardian Egyptian, keeping their headline within conventions. - Lower case language with correct grammar, maintaining a professional manner. - Language allows you to easily understand what the news will include. - The Times uses Times New Roman, a serif font. - Lower case headlines, within the conventions with professional grammatical language. - Very simple language that is very informative to instantly get a message across. - Uses the serif font of Bell face by Monotype - Large text on page is capitalised to emphasise importance and to bring attention towards it, this breaks Broadsheet paper conventions. The sub-heading is in lower case and is smaller, helping bring attention to the large text initially. The font feels much stronger than other papers which breaks the conventions as it makes the newspaper feel less professional. - The language of the headline is very simple to understand the story. However, as seen in the paper on the left, it is not always professional. All these newspapers stay within the generic conventions on a Broadsheet paper as the language remains serious and 'straight to the point'. Broadsheet headlines tend to possibly be capitalised, often lower case. In serif fonts (Times New Roman, Garamond, Baskerville, Georgia, and Courier New) and include informative language.
  • 6. News presented • All papers report on serious matters impacting their audience/ audience's interest. However, these responses may be impacted by the newspapers political view. The Times: Centre- Right stance The Guardian: Left- Wing stance The Daily Telegraph: conservative stance These stories contain significant information for the general public in the UK. Allowing the readers to remain aware of the current events that are impacting the world. The Daily Telegraph may break these conventions and report on less serious news. This may be to keep readers interested as when 'making fun' etc. of someone it tends to fit the views of the audience.
  • 7. Audience of the papers - Centre Right views The political stance of newspapers tend to influence the audience of their news. Therefore, most readers will share a political view with the paper. However, we must also understand that some viewers want to expand their knowledge with different opinions, and some may also try to be unbiased. - conservative views The Guardian - Left Wing views Centre Right ideology: Parties of the centre-right generally support liberal democracy, capitalism, the market economy (though they may accept government regulation to control monopolies), private property rights, and a limited welfare state (for example, government provision of education and medical care). Conservatism is a cultural, social, and political philosophy that seeks to promote and to preserve traditional institutions, customs, and values. The central tenets of conservatism may vary in relation to the culture and civilization in which it appears. Have sought egalitarian changes in the economic, political, and cultural institutions of the United Kingdom. Generally, the left wing is characterized by an emphasis on "ideas such as freedom, equality, fraternity, rights, progress, reform and internationalism" Audience
  • 8. Images These images remain to the generic conventions of Broadsheet papers. They demonstrate the raw emotions within these stories in a respectful manner. This allows you to understand the response that others may have to the situation which could influence the opinion of the reader. These images don’t break the times generic conventions of their usual front covers. They keep up with the convention across Broadsheet papers of showing the situation how it is whilst also getting straight to the point as these pictures are widely recognised and understandable. The images do not create an opinion for the reader at first look but once reading into them a bit more the reader may build emotions around these images, for example, the left image is clearly a mugshot. Therefore, the viewer understands this person may have negative reasons for this type of image. The Guardian starts off by breaking their generic conventions of a front cover image that relates to the headline. This paper had a headline of 'NAPLAN THE NEW ENTRY HURDLE' which references the new tests which determine which schools children can go to, whilst the image that catches your eye is about weight loss. However, these images do not feel as respectful as these people are being having their privacy invaded despite doing no wrong. The Guardian
  • 9. News Agenda The Guardian Typically Broadsheet papers contents focus on politics, finance and international news. Hard News. Both these covers include content that fit into Broadsheet conventions, the text that initially catches your eye is speaking about inflation and UK politics. The Times breaks these conventions by including pop music news along the top of the cover, which generally attracts a more youthful audience with less conservative views. However, this may be an attempt to attract other audiences. Again, both these stories contain serious politics. Within the conventions with The Times, The Guardian also contains soft information along the top of their covers, 'Barbecue special' and football. However, the paper on the left initially seems less political but actually contains a story titled by 'I'm intrigued by political stupidity'. The Daily Telegraph is a conservative papers and the political news on their covers fit within this stance. These papers also contain holiday adverts, another way to draw attention to their paper with a positive want of the general public.
  • 10. The Guardian breaks its conventions by ensuring all attention is brought to the image by keeping the rest of the page clear from pictures. The image is very impactful and has the same context to the covid related paper to the right by The Daily Telegraph. The Daily Telegraph created an online version of their paper in a physical format during covid lockdown allowing reach their usual audience easily whilst also giving themselves the opportunity to find new readers on a new platform, especially when everyone was so engrossed in the news. This paper breaks conventions by such a large image that you will most definitely look at it first, especially seen as the headline is written within the image. Which also breaks their conventions of serious papers, it is common that The Daily Telegraph uses text in images for their less serious stories, however we see it happening here in this hard news story. I could not find a front cover where The Times breaks its generic conventions. Making it a consistent paper.
  • 11. News register Informal/ Indirect Mode of address The Times uses formal language, demonstrating their values and attempt to connect to their target audience within the centre-right party. The Guardian The Guardian uses formal language fitting to a professional attitude no matter how their views may impact the situation. They can be seen as respectful when speaking about sensitive subjects whilst also keeping to their opinions of a left-wing stance. No matter the importance of the information being reported on, The Daily Telegraph will use formal language. This attracts their conservative audience who most likely follow ideology of remaining well- spoken and 'educated'.
  • 12. THE TIMES Conclusion • The Times is seen to be a very traditional newspaper, this statement is supported by the conservative 'centre- right' values of the paper. You initially see these values through the traditional text font and coat of arms that make up the masthead. The Times focuses their news on serious matters allowing their audience to be informed about constant matters, however this news is seen to have a biased on many topics to a conservative ideology. The stories are also pieces of typical broadsheet text as they look at the hard news agenda. I have found The Times to be very consistent within their conventions as they maintain a professional layout to all the information. These techniques being used to create The Times allow them to easily reach their target audience as well as it is appealing to the traditional public.
  • 13. THE GUARDIAN Conclusion • The Guardian is a left leaning paper. This is backed up using formal language and an academic nontraditional masthead to display their modern viewpoints. The Guardian focuses on serious matters and shows their left leaning views with stories focused on freedom equality and rights appealing to their left-wing audience. The Guardian mostly stays within their conventions occasionally breaking them with softer news, but mostly staying within conventions of the papers views.
  • 14. THE DAILY TELEGRAPH Conclusion • The Daily Telegraph is a conservative newspaper, this is shown by the conservative 'right' values of the paper. You initially see these values through the traditional text font that make up the masthead. The Daily Telegraph focuses their news on serious matters allowing their audience to be informed about constant matters, however this news is seen to have a biased on many topics to a conservative ideology. The stories are also pieces of typical broadsheet text as they look at the hard news agenda. I have found The Daily Telegraph to be consistent within conventions as they maintain a professional layout to all the information. These techniques being used to create The Daily Telegraph allow them to easily reach their desired audience as well as it is appealing to the traditional public.
