What to look forward to at newsrewired

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.

A sneak peek at December’s news:rewired

The next news:rewired digital journalism conference is taking place on Tuesday 1 December in London, and here at Journalism.co.uk we’ve been busy planning the agenda. Topics we will be discussing at December’s news:rewired include:

The rise of chat apps – Private messaging apps have become a regular feature in the media toolbox, used both to share news with mobile audiences and to source reports. How have media organisations been working with chat apps and what could their future role in news be?

Building in-house tools – Many news outlets have been building their own tools to make everyday newsgathering and storytelling tasks simpler and quicker. But what resources go into this process and what problems are they trying to solve in the first place?

International investigations – A collaborative investigation from a global reporting team can result in major stories sweeping the international media, and December’s news:rewired will take a look at the tools and techniques needed to complete such projects.

Early-bird discounted tickets end this Friday, 4 September.

Digital tickets now available for news:rewired

We’re happy to announce that digital tickets for the next news:rewired are now available, so even if you can’t make it to the conference itself you still have a chance to catch the talks and sessions from the day.

The event, at MSN HQ in London on Wednesday 23 July, brings leaders in digital journalism together to discuss their work, share advice and lead workshops in relevant areas.

As well as the networking opportunities and extra materials available on the day, there will be focused post-lunch workshops looking at mobile apps and tools for journalists; creating immersive, longform stories; and using analytics to understand the audience.

While these workshops will give delegates a practical, hands-on guide to the particular subjects, they will not be filmed, and will not be included in the digital ticket offering.

There is also a full day of training the day after the conference, with a choice of courses in mobile journalism with RTÉ’s Glen Mulcahy, data journalism with Conrad Quilty-Harper of Ampp3d, or creating a buzz on social media with BuzzFeed UK editor Luke Lewis.

The full agenda is now available, including:
