The Financial Times is launching Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), which allows sites to build light-weight versions of web pages that can load almost instantaneously on mobile.
The goals of AMP are to enhance speed and performance across devices and platforms, improving the mobile ecosystem for everyone — users, content providers, creators, advertisers and platforms – with pages that load quickly, scroll smoothly and text that doesn’t jump around as images load.
Headquartered in London but with offices in New York, San Francisco, Washington DC, Hong Kong and Brussels, amongst others, the FT employs more than 2,200 staff globally across 35 bureaux with a global network of 600 journalists.
Amid media disruption and proliferation, it is vital to attract and retain the best talent. Skilled employees are at the heart of the FT’s success, including awarding winning journalism which has attracted record-high readership, and innovations such as its pioneering access model, web app and fastFT.
The Financial Times and OppenheimerFunds today announced the launch of the second annual FT/OppenheimerFunds Emerging Voices Awards, a global initiative designed to recognize artistic talent in emerging-market nations.* The winners in three categories – art, fiction, and film – will be announced in September 2016. Each winner will receive a $40,000 award, and two runners-up per category will receive $5,000.
“We are delighted to launch the Emerging Voices arts awards with OppenheimerFunds for the second year. The Financial Times has reported and analysed the rise of the emerging market economies and followed their political trajectories for years. These awards show our determination to learn more about, and reward, their cultural richness too,” said Michael Skapinker, FT associate editor and chair of the judges.
