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.
Last week we announced that Journalism.co.uk and Google News Initiative have partnered to offer 30 local journalists the opportunity to attend the Newsrewired conference. We have received nearly 50 applications in one week alone, which shows how much demand for support there is from bootstrapped, regional newsrooms.
