Newsrewired to offer 40 virtual places to local journalists thanks to support from the Google News Initiative
Journalism.co.uk and Google News Initiative have partnered again to offer 40 local journalists the opportunity to virtually attend the Newsrewired conference, taking place on 29 June – 2 July 2020.
Originally planned to take place on 4 June 2020 in Manchester, our event has been moved online due to covid-19. Before the pandemic, 200 digital journalists, publishers and communication professionals from around the world would gather thrice a year to discover the latest trends in digital media innovation.
This time, the four-day virtual event will feature talks and hands-on workshops, as well as two online training courses in creating engaging social content with your mobile phone; and sustainable revenue strategies for small, regional newsrooms.
The agenda will focus on reinventing journalistic work in ‘distributed newsrooms’; engaging audiences and building loyal community of readers; rethinking business models and exploring new, sustainable revenue streams; and reimagining what journalism will look like in the post-pandemic world.
As the media industry continues to be disrupted by the effects of the covid-19 pandemic, Journalism.co.uk has decided to bring our Newsrewired conference online.
But that doesn’t mean we have to miss out on access to top expert insights, learning practical skills, and network with other great minds. Better than that – a virtual event allows us to bring you all of this, wherever you are.
As the global media industry grapples with the spread of coronavirus, it’s even more important that content creators have a complete view of readership across channels.
While most of us have set up our workstations inside our homes, many journalists are out in the streets, keeping on serving their communities when they need them the most.
If there is one thing we know for sure during these uncertain times, it is that the things will not be back to normal within a few days or weeks.
For the past 10 years, Newsrewired has been bringing the digital publishing community together to share knowledge, make new contacts and start new collaborations that foster innovation in the sector.
As half of publishers bet on reader revenue as their main source of income in 2020, there is no hiding from the fact that news is no longer largely subsidised by advertising. Newsrooms are increasingly in charge of developing new, engaged audiences, as well as understanding metrics and creating new revenue streams.
The upcoming Newsrewired conference, taking place on 4 June at MediaCityUK, will feature a workshop where delegates will learn how to start implementing artificial intelligence (AI) in their everyday journalistic work.
The session will be led by Charlie Beckett, a professor in the Department of Media and Communications and founding director of Polis, the London School of Economics’ international journalism think-tank.
The next Newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 4 June 2020 at MediaCityUK in Greater Manchester.
After 10 years of great talks and networking in London, the Journalism.co.uk team is taking the 26th Newsrewired conference to another UK city renowned for innovation in digital publishing – Manchester.
94 per cent of UK journalists are white. 86 per cent have gone to university. 78 per cent of 18-34- year-olds cannot afford to live in London, away from home, to do unpaid internships and get their foot in the door. PressPad is trying to change that.
The acquisition has seen The Memo’s back catalogue of content transferred to Forbes.com, thus making it accessible to 80 million readers worldwide. As the title ceased to exist, its team of 80 has joined Forbes, which allowed the business publisher to expand its network of contributors across the continent to more than 200.
