  1. Good day. Wanted to enquire about if there are any package deals if travelling to the conference in a group(students- from Botswana)

  2. Kgosi — we will launch the conference website in a week or so, and there will be information posted on it about attending GIJC17, including links to discounted hotels and travel advice. Hope to see you there!

  3. Hi,
    I am a journalist with seven years of work experience, but currently, I am on a study break and not pursuing as a full-time journalist. Is it possible for me to attend the conference, and if yes, what’s the procedure for applying?

    • You are welcome to join us at the conference, which is attended by journalists, professors, students, NGO staff, and others. We will launch the conference website in a few days with information on how to register, transportation, lodging, and more. Hope you can make it.

  4. I am a Tanzanian jouranlist working with the Daily news, an english daily broadsheet. I am a member of the Cross Borders Africa investigative journalists network started by a group of 25 africa seniour editors who attended a Pan african investigative journalism course at wits university in dec. 2012 when the US was launching africa media hub project. I would love to attend this conference to gain new insights on investigative journalism. i am a sub editor doing international features editing. i hold a second class diploma in journalism, a law degree and i am currently doing my master of arts degree in international cooperation and developemnt at tyhe open university of tanzania. i believe this course will suit me because i will have time to interact with many scholars from around the world. kidly let me know if i can be eligble and get a fellowship/scholarship.funds to attend. regards.

  5. actually i will like to attend, i am a working journalist from Nigeria Africa, but where do I start from? my transport ,accommodation and other logistics, who will take care of them?

  6. I am a broadcast media journalist from the southern part of India. What are the norms to participate in this conference?

  7. Wow, I bet #GIJC2017 will be great. I cant wait to be there and learn, network, interact with media practioctioners from all over the globe. I attended #AIJC16 last year and it was such an eye opener. Just the kind of networking that I needed. I was particularly struck by the cross-border collaboration sessions and after the conference, I initiated a whatsapp group with more than 20 journalists who I met at WITS. We share tips, story ideas, contacts, sources and alerts on upcoming media trainings & workshops. I am looking forward for this year’s event. Thanks WITS and GIJN for organising this
