A special edition of Germany's largest daily will hit the newsstands on August 28, in which all the photos and advertising will be in 3D, Efe reported yesterday.

The newspaper, which has a circulation of 3.8 million copies, will also give away the 3D glasses so readers can enjoy the three-dimensional effect. However, the text will be published in its regular format.

More special features will be found in Bild's online edition as video clips, games and movies will be offer in 3D, Efe explained.

The German daily is not the first newspaper to use this visual technique. Earlier this year, Belgium's La Derniere Heure, UK's The Sun and Thailand's The Bangkok Post released 3D issues, among others.

As Fairfax Media restructures, adding a digital director with wide-ranging media experience is essential for the Australian media group's renewal, board chairman Roger Corbett told The Australian this week.

Corbett said he is talking to potential hires who will help strengthen the digital area. "We have pretty good traditional media experience in, of course, John Fairfax and (managing director) Brian McCarthy, but we certainly want to have a mind that understands media and helps us move into this broad new era and the changes that will happen," he said.

Three new appointments to the board include Sam Morgan, founder of TradeMe, which was sold to Fairfax for A$700 million in 2006; Sandra McPhee, director of Australia's AGL energy and Kathmandu Holdings; and Linda Nicholls, former chairwoman of the Australian Post, according to The National Business Review.

"Audit and risk are very important for a big company, but after talking to Brian [McCarthy at an investor lunch] it would be good to see someone else who could push the digital growth story inside the boardroom," one Fairfax shareholder who asked to not be named told The Australian.
