NOTE: The Call for Ideas is now closed. The deadline was Jan 10, 2023.
The next Global Investigative Journalism Conference is scheduled for September 19-22, 2023 in Gothenburg, Sweden, at the world-class Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. The conference will be co-hosted by the Global Investigative Journalism Network, the Fojo Media Institute at Linnaeus University, and Föreningen Grävande Journalister, Sweden’s national association of investigative journalists.
In the spirit of creating the best conference for investigative journalists, GIJC23 is now looking for great ideas for its sessions. Have an exciting proposal in mind? Fill in the form below by no later than January 10, 2023, and our conference committee will consider them.
A few thoughts to keep in mind:
GIJCs are training conferences, with a laser-like focus on investigative tools and techniques. We want conference sessions that are skills-based, so that journalists from around the world leave with new knowledge and know-how.
Here’s what we don’t want: No “war stories” about how great your past stories were. No policy discussions. And the sessions need to be balanced, by gender and geography.
We have three main types of sessions:
- Panels (usually with three speakers and a moderator)
- Workshops (smaller sessions usually taught by one or two trainers)
- Networking Sessions (informal meet-ups based on language, region, or topic)
We expect GIJC23 to be the largest-ever international gathering of investigative journalists. Here’s your opportunity to help shape the conference and make it a memorable event. Thanks in advance for your help, and see you in Gothenburg!
Note: The working language of the conference is English, so the proposed speakers should speak and understand English. Please submit all ideas in English.
