New.Now.Next Media Conference (N3Con)
May 27, 2016 - May 29, 2016
Journalism in the Mobile Age
Social media, smart phones and now virtual reality platforms are changing the way journalism is being “done” these days. Taken to the extreme, will robots one day replace human journalists? Can they? What about practices of old-fashioned journalism, where reporters walk “beats” and knock on doors to seek out sources, instead of pinging requests on Twitter or sourcing from Facebook pages? In this digital and mobile world, how will journalism – and journalists – evolve?
Join us as we delve into these areas and explore Journalism in The Mobile Age at the annual AAJA-Asia international media conference. Once again, this year’s event – our 6thannual conference – will be held in Seoul.
Over this weekend, more than 300 journalists from around the region, and the United States, will participate in a weekend of workshops, panels, evening soirees and tour programs. Come network with speakers and participants from international news organisations such as Bloomberg, the Associated Press and The New York Times, as well as Seoul’s major media outlets.
Get ready to share your best practices with journalists from print, broadcast, radio and new media. Learn some new technical skills, discover more about regional issues and get advice on how to advance your career.
Sponsors include Google and the Center for Creative Economy and Innovation.
