Citizen Journalism 2007 : the blog

08Dec06

This is the blog for the Citizen Journalism 2007 conference taking place in Birmingham on January 26, an opportunity for the news industry, academics, bloggers and citizen journalists to get together and look at the issues raised by this increasingly mainstream form..

We have three excellent keynote speakers arranged for the day. These are:

Michael Hill – the newly appointed Head of Multimedia at Trinity Mirror who has already expressed a desire to make the most of citizen journalism.

Tom Reynolds – the blogger behind Random Acts of Reality and the author of ‘Blood, Sweat and Tea’, a collection of blog posts that reached no.8 on Amazon.

And Vicky Taylor – the head of interactivity at the BBC, who recently announced they would start paying for viewer contributed content.

The speakers will be followed by lunch, workshop sessions and end with a panel discussion – I’m still firming up some people to take part in that.

Details should be on mediaskills.org.uk shortly. Anyone can book a place for £80+VAT through Sarah Calhaem on 0121 204 9883 or email Sarah.Calhaem@uce.ac.uk
