Journalism Skills Conference 2018

The Journalism Skills Conference and Awards for Excellence gala dinner and ceremony returned for 2018, taking place on Thursday, 29 and Friday, 30 November. 

The two-day conference was hosted in Essex by one of the longest-standing journalism training centres in the UK – Harlow College. 

Delegates and guests also saw the presentation of the 2018 Awards for Excellence at nearby Quendon Hall.

We looked at the skills and techniques needed to bring to life data-driven stories, how to stay strong and keep safe as a journalist, the future of magazine journalism as well as the latest tips and tricks to verify information and images from social media in the fight against fake news.

We also explored how some of the biggest stories of 2018 were sourced and revealed to the public.

There were specialist sessions to consider the latest developments in journalism and to share practice, teaching, learning and skills.

We were joined by a host of speakers who are making waves in the industry and are working at the heart of the revolution in journalism skills.
