FAQ

General

The KAS Media Programme Asia team was excited to host the 2nd Mobile Journalism (MOJO) Asia Conference in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, following our success in Bangkok, Thailand in 2019.

However, after closely monitoring the local and regional Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) situation and observing advisories issued by local health authorities, especially the Ministry of Health Singapore (MOH), where most of the organising team is based out from, we have decided to make MOJO Asia Conference a fully virtual experience instead.

The MOJO Asia Virtual Conference 2020 will still take place on 26 and 27 June 2020 with virtual fringe events leading up to the online interactive sessions planned out for you.

The COVID-19 situation has escalated and spread to most countries and territories around the world. In its efforts to contain and minimise the further spread of Covid-19, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung has made the decision to take our MOJO Asia Conference fully online.

This will be the first virtual event for the only community platform for mobile journalists across Asia.

The 2019 in-person edition gathered more than 256 delegates from 31 countries with 25 speakers from around the world.

While the world remains shaken and confined due to the unprecedented global pandemic, we believe this time presents like no other to gather together, share innovative ideas around capitalising on the power of MOJO and strengthen our connections to one another, sharing inspiring stories and best practices that we can all learn from.

Agenda

The MOJO Asia Conference is targeted at newsroom innovators, leading broadcasters and practitioners who embody the word “mobile” in mobile journalism. The Conference aims to highlight agile, adaptive and innovative trends in the industry and how to maintain and build your portfolio despite the challenging times we are in.

The Virtual Conference will be no different. The 2-day conference offers parallel sessions of thought leadership through visual, audio and written formats with experts and community leaders well-versed in adapting MOJO for the Asian markets. 

All sessions will be recorded, so that you can access them conveniently at any time of the day during the conference and after (for a short period of time) with your individual log-in account. Content will however not be downloadable but you may feel free to approach experts via contact information offered in their speaker profiles.

Networking is key for MOJO Asia Conference: every individual is requested to sign up for a personalised account to meet other like-minded professionals from different markets and media companies to connect, collaborate and build strategic partnerships, particularly during this time of social isolation. Sign up now to learn more about this special networking feature.

Each day is a deep dive into top concerns for practitioners and how to navigate with keynotes, hands-on workshops by industry experts, best practice/experience sharing through AMAs and masterclasses; all with a keen eye on the evolving business landscape and how to cope. Virtual sessions are tailored for diverse audiences from freelancers to editor-in-chief to corporates invested in responsible news reporting and/or business innovation. We have a special segment on Epidemic Coverage where we promote effective solutions-based journalistic practices that can help one work remotely and more collaboratively with stakeholders/newsrooms. 

Please check the Agenda page for the latest updates.

More details on how to access the sessions will be sent to the email address officially registered for the virtual conference in the lead up to the event.
