The countdown has begun for our 22nd digital journalism conference newsrewired, which takes place in London on Wednesday 11 July.
A handful of tickets are still available. Buy yours for just £180 +VAT.
We have a great line-up of speakers from news outlets including Reuters, BuzzFeed News, The Guardian, The BBC, The Economist, The Telegraph, Financial Times and many more.
The day will kick off with a keynote speech on maintaining credibility and trust in an age of ‘fake news’, looking at how Reuters is addressing these issues by focusing on robust reporting, maintaining independence, increasing transparency and, when they occur, correcting mistakes quickly.
Following the keynote, a panel on “slow journalism” will look at the power of stories that are not tied to the daily news cycle, and two successive talks will shed the light on why an audience-first mindset is key, and the latest findings of Reuters Institute on podcast usage in 22 countries.
After the coffee break, we will hear an expert advice on how to make podcast a success, and new ways media organisations can finance innovation.
Following the networking lunch, the conference will split into two streams until later in the day. The panel sessions will look at constructive journalism that helps counter anxiety resulting from daily negative news stories, and building successful social media communities.
The workshop will help you navigate the world of free and paid-for apps for mobile journalism and make the best use of your smartphone for reporting.
The opening panel at the next newsrewired event will explore journalism beyond the 24-hour news cycle.
How do you tell stories once most of the cameras have gone? How do you keep audiences engaged?
And how can you keep track of the impact of your newsgathering and storytelling?
