The War on Muckraking

There's a war on journalism, and investigative reporters are on the front lines. Next month, at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference's plenary session, we will hear five courageous journalists talk not only of prosecutions, dirty tricks, and near-death experiences, but also how to fight back. And our colleagues from 120 countries will add their voices to a global campaign to say "Enough!"

GIJN is pleased to announce it has arranged with ESRI, one of the world’s premier digital mapping companies, to provide free licenses to GIJN members and workshop participants at our Global Conference.

GIJC15: Masterclasses & Hotels

Our co-hosts at SKUP have arranged two exclusive masterclasses for GIJC15: On Friday, Oscar and Emmy nominated filmmaker Hanna Polak will teach Documentary Film-Making.

And don't forget: deadline for booking the full hotel package is today (9/23). Our bargain price includes a room and all meals.

The media business model has cracked worldwide. So how do you fund independent media? Maria Teresa Ronderos of OSF's Program on Independent Journalism looks at creative ideas to sustain good journalism, from Paris to Kabul and Yangon. If you're working at a media startup or nonprofit, don't miss this one.
