May 22, 2020

Posted by Mariam Ahmed and Google News Initiative have formed a partnership offering 40 local journalists the opportunity to virtually attend the Newsrewired conference, taking place on 29 June – 2 July 2020.

Prior to the pandemic, 200 digital journalists, publishers and communication professionals globally would gather thrice a year to discover the latest trends in digital media innovation.

However, 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.

The event will also focus on sustainable revenue strategies for small, regional newsrooms.

All delegates will be given exclusive access to an online networking group as staying connected is now more important than ever.

“Bringing our successful in-person conference online is as exciting as it is challenging,” said Marcela Kunova, editor at and Newsrewired organiser. “However, 26 previous events have shown us how important knowledge-sharing and networking is to the journalism community and we are committed to sticking with our audience at the time they need us the most.”
