Community Engagement

Good journalism requires long-term trust building, strong people skills and inclusion of diverse voices. These qualities become even more important when engaging with communities and empowering them to report from their own point of view. This panel covers it all with best practices from leading organisations across Asia Pacific with a key focus on strategies in engaging with an increasingly distracted and polarised world, with fake news and disinformation as the plague. How can media outfits localise effectively to mobilise relevant content that promotes and represents marginalised voices?

To be a successful freelancer, you don’t just need the ability to spot and tell a great story. You also need the equipment to create professional quality content for outlets who will pay you for your work. 

Smartphones have forever changed the freelance landscape, opening up the journalism industry to thousands of reporters, particularly in developing countries, by making it possible for them to cover and sell video and audio stories.
