Over the past four days, 1,700 journalists from 130 countries gathered in Hamburg, Germany, to share experiences, learn from expert speakers, network with kindred spirits, and find new partners for their next investigations. It was the most diverse and largest-ever international gathering of investigative journalists, and a perfect place to be inspired.
Using command line to talk directly to your computer with lines of text rather than pointing and clicking can seem daunting at first. However, Max Harlow of the Financial Times explained at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference 2019 that it is not as challenging as it seems.
The Global Investigative Journalism Conference is the world’s premier international gathering of investigative journalists held every two years. The next conference in 2021 will be an especially significant event as GIJC will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. GIJN, which oversees the conferences, is now accepting proposals from GIJN member organizations for the 12th Global Investigative Journalism Conference.
Deadline to apply for the GIJC17 fellowship was May 15, 2017, 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5). Applications are now closed. Winners will be notified via email by August 1, 2017. The Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC) is the premier international gathering of investigative and data journalists, held once every two years. This year, the 10th conference will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa, from November 16 to 19, and is being co-hosted by the Global Investigative Journalism Network and the Wits University Journalism Programme.
