GIJN Newsletter: New Global Guide and GIJC13 Countdown

The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is getting close! Our just-released newsletter includes highlights of the planned sessions and collaborative workshops for the big October 12-15 event, as well as information on the Royal Tulip, the conference hotel. You’ll also find an update on the three major awards that will be announced in Rio. This year we received more than 60 submissions from 35 countries for the Global Shining Light Award. The competition is so keen that our judges have called it “an embarrassment of riches”. And, as usual, you’ll find the latest resources in our toolbox section, and a calendar of upcoming events.

GIJN Newsletter: Conference Registration, Grants, Awards

Busy months for GIJN. Our just-released newsletter includes the latest on the big Global Investigative Journalism Conference coming to Rio this October, including how to register, apply for a travel grant, and enter awards. You’ll find our call for proposals to host GIJC15 (the conference after Rio), some great resources in our Toolbox section, and a calendar of upcoming events. We’re also happy to report that, thanks to all of you, we’ve tripled traffic on our new website here at GIJN.org, which last month hosted visitors from more than 150 countries – that’s three-quarters of the world.
