Google and CIJ Launch Access to Tools

The Google News Initiative is working with the Centre for Investigative Journalism to provide a new program called Access to Tools. Over the coming months, a team of expert trainers will provide up to 20 free workshops across the UK, each designed to help newsroom and freelance journalists sharpen their digital news gathering and research skills. The practical workshops will feature technology from a range of providers and include real-life examples, including how individual journalists have traced original sources.

CIJ Founder Gavin MacFadyen Dies

We at GIJN are sad to note the passing of our colleague Gavin MacFadyen, founder and director of the London-based Centre for Investigative Journalism. The CIJ was one of GIJN's founding member organizations and Gavin was among the leaders of our global community. He was an avid documentary producer, with more than 50 films, and later a determined campaigner for Julian Assange and various whistleblowers. His CIJ is perhaps best known for its investigative journalism summer school.

This manual has been written for journalists, NGO workers, and others for whom photography could be useful in supporting their work.
