Announcing the next news:rewired digital journalism conference

Bags GV’s next news:rewired digital journalism conference is set to take place on Thursday 16 July at MSN UK’s offices in Victoria, London.

The one-day conference will offer delegates a choice of sessions and workshops covering tools, tips and techniques in digital journalism from some of the leading figures in the industry, aiming to give everyone involved some practical knowledge to use in their daily jobs.

Some initial themes and areas we are looking to discuss at the event include:

  • The mobile revolution – what journalists need to know about reporting, producing and distributing their stories with mobile devices
  • Live news – barriers between news events, reporters and the public are receding at pace, so how can journalists inform and engage with their audience in real time?
  • Native storytelling – the number of different platforms and digital networks increases by the month, so what do news organisations need to know to make their stories relevant?

Although the agenda for July has yet to be announced you can still see the schedule from February’s news:rewired to get more of a feel for the day on the news:rewired website.

Have some ideas for what you would like to see? Email news editor and event organiser Alastair Reid with “news:rewired ideas” in the subject to talk further.
