Event Details

Transparency and Accountability is the theme for our fifth annual international journalism conference on Friday March 28th, 2014. The conference is put on in partnership with the BBC Academy, EBU/Eurovision, and the Knight Foundation.

There will be a mixture of plenary debates about journalism, combined with a series of practical sessions where journalism experts share their skills and insights.

It is free and open to all. There will be free networking drinks at the end.

Our last conference was a massive success with more than 500 people enjoying the day. This will be bigger and better than ever before.

With thanks to Leuchtturm1917 and for their support.
