Covering News in the Era of Digital Disruption
|A day of expert panels and workshops for journalists at every stage of their career|
|SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 2016|
09:30 – 18:30
The FCC’s inaugural conference Covering News in the Era of Digital Disruption offers a day of expert panels and workshops focusing on the multiple challenges facing journalists in a rapidly changing media landscape.
With speakers from many of the world’s news leaders, the conference will give insight and practical advice on such issues as cybersecurity, sourcing through social media, writing for online and mobile, conflict reporting, following the money using documents, the art of long-form journalism, maximising photo impact and challenging sources.
The conference opens with a session on how to kick-start your career in journalism and ends with a look into the future of media. Speakers are from such industry leaders as CNN, the BBC, Reuters, AFP, Bloomberg, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, the Guardian, Storyful and Quartz. Please see the attached programme for details.
We hope the event will prove rewarding for all journalists, from beginners to seasoned correspondents, at a fraction of the price of typical conferences at $395 for the whole day, including a light breakfast, lunch and post-event drinks.
The Human Rights Press Awards are run by the FCC, Amnesty International Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Journalists Association. The 22nd annual awards will be judged in the coming weeks and the awards ceremony held on May 12, 2018. Click here for more details.
