Journalism Diversity Fund bursary recipients Ben Bostock and Katey Pigden, both studying at Cardiff University, were invited to report on this year’s Journalism Skills Conference in Cardiff on 2 and 3 December.
The National Council for the Training of Journalists’ showpiece event brought together decision makers in journalism’s education, training and industry sectors. It featured a Question Time journalism skills debate, a talk on reporting devolution and a panel discussion about what it means to be a fully converged journalist. Awards for the top-performing NCTJ-accredited courses and the NCTJ’s Chairman Award were also announced.
Ben and Katey were asked to cover the journalism skills debate, held at the Wales Millennium Centre, with a mixture of writing, videojournalism and photography. The written reports from Ben and Katey are published below and a video of the conference taken by Ben and Katey is availale by following the link at the bottom of the page.
