Since the turn of the millennium, our team here in Brighton have been working to provide you with the latest news in digital journalism, enabling you to keep up with the changes in our fast-paced industry.
Over the last 20 years, we have expanded to run two to three newsrewired digital journalism conferences every year, a jobs board full of upcoming media opportunities, and a range of bespoke training courses for news organisations in the UK and abroad.
We have a lot going on here at Journalism.co.uk. Why not take a look at all the opportunities we offer and start your new year off on a high...
1. Media coverage of the latest tools, trends and techniques in digital journalism
We interview journalists, editors, and digital innovators in the UK and abroad about their latest work, the challenges they are facing, and most importantly, how they are overcoming them.
From virtual reality to solutions journalism, and freelancer advice to new tools and apps to help you with your daily work, we cover a range of topics and skill sets that you need to be aware of as we kick off 2019.
Don't miss our weekly podcast, focusing on a different journalism topic each week.
2. A daily (Mon-Fri) email newsletter, with our weekly video roundup
You will not miss a thing with our email newsletter, consisting of all the top journalism stories that we have been reporting on.
And for your commute, we post a short, presenter-led 'Weekly News Update' video to social media every Friday.
3. Newsrewired digital journalism conferences
Two to three times a year, we gather some of the globe's most innovative journalists and publishers to discuss the latest tools, trends and techniques in digital journalism.
Through workshops, panel discussions and presentations, spend a day hearing about the issues and big talking points moulding our industry, while networking with fellow media professionals.
4. A jobs board packed full of new opportunities
Updated daily, our UK jobs board is here for you to bag the latest journalism opportunities first.
Simply create a jobseeker account on our site, and you will be able to apply for the roles directly, and also receive customised email job alerts – the latest opportunities of your choice emailed directly either daily or in digest form.
5. Bag your next hire
Are you hiring? If so, why not advertise your latest roles with us, that will be seen by 200,000 visitors a month. Contact our senior account manager, Andy Brimson today.
6. Customised email press release alerts
Get story leads within the subject areas of your choice emailed to you daily (opt in for this opportunity here). You can also publish your own press release via our PressGo service, where you can deliver your story to more than 18,000 opted-in email recipients; tweet your message to more than 15,000 followers of @pressreleases and share it with more than 24,000 communications professionals on LinkedIn.
7. An online directory of journalists active on Twitter
Search for colleagues or add yourself – this is another opportunity to network online, to meet people before you spot them at one of the many journalism conferences held around the world each year.
8. Send questions and get answers from the registered experts and PRs in our PressQuest database
If you need some facts, quotes or statistics for your news or feature story and don't have the contacts you need, then we are here to help.
PressQuest is a free service for journalists that allows you to easily submit information requests to our network of public relations companies and get the responses you need.
9. Training courses: open, one-day, online or bespoke.
We run a variety of training courses here at Journalism.co.uk, ranging from audience engagement strategies to podcast skills to an analytics boot camp.
If you do not find what you are looking for on our training page, we also offer in-house training to suit your needs. Hands-on or theoretical, we have you covered.
10. Advertise your freelance services, or request freelance support
As well as tons of tips and advice for freelancers in our written pieces, we also provide a popular space for journalists to get noticed and booked for upcoming jobs.
Along with exposure, you will also get a branded email address with robust anti-spam protection, and will be automatically added to our 'freelance hacks for hire' list on Twitter.
Make 2019 your year for moving forward with your career. If you have any questions, contact us today.
