newsrewired booking information

The next newsrewired digital journalism conference will take place on 11 July 2018 at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London.

This will be our 22nd conference, and as usual, we are aiming to provide delegates with practical skills and ideas they can take home and explore in their own organisations.

The day will feature a mix of workshops and panel discussions about the latest tools, trends and techniques in digital journalism.

Here are some of subjects we will be discussing on the day:

  • constructive journalism – the traditional news diet can leave people feeling anxious as negative stories flood TVs or social media feeds, but people who interact with solutions-focused stories feel empowered, spend more time on the article page, and are more likely to share the stories on social media;

  • journalism beyond the news cycle – the benefits of slow journalism, the staying power of good storytelling, and the impact of investigative reporting;

  • editorial newsletters – how to put together a successful newsletter strategy, and how to get ahead in the battle for attention in your readers’ inboxes;

  • building communities on social media – should you go for Facebook groups, LinkedIn or Instagram? And once you’ve picked your networks, how do you create a conductive and engaging space?

Here's a link to the programme for the day.

Tickets for the event cost £180+VAT.

Mastering the art of Instagram

Instagram’s growth shows no sign of slowing down and it now boasts 800 million monthly (and 500 million daily) users. Brands love it and the ‘Stories’ function has really taken off. So just how can you make Instagram work for you?

If you’re looking to improve your Instagram offering, generate more creative and engaging content and come away brimming with ideas and inspiration, then this is the course for you.

Designed and led by former BBC journalist Sue Llewellyn, this course will help you to master the art of Instagram to create more beautiful and engaging content and to develop a clear and effective strategy to get the most out of it.

Aimed at food/drink/beauty brands and bloggers, photographers, journalists, programme-makers, PRs and comms teams, this course is perfect for anyone – especially creatives with a visual hobby or passion – who wants to be able to generate beautiful photos and tell more emotionally engaging stories.

360 immersive reality video

All storytellers and content creators are keen to find new and better ways of engaging the audience more deeply than ever before. And what could be more engaging than taking the audience away from their screens and transporting them to right there on location? That’s 360 Immersive Reality filmmaking.

This intensive one day course, taught by Dean Arnett, will demystify the equipment, the storytelling and the whole production and publication process.

We’ll look at the various kit at all kinds of price points – including the new 360 cameras that plug into your phone. We’ll explore the challenges on location with camera placement, sound, lighting, movement, camera operation and much more. We’ll ask how the immersive reality changes how we approach conventional narratives and how we can use the medium to push the storytelling boundaries.

We’ll look at the post-production process and compare workflow between self-contained cameras and 360 filming ‘rigs’. And we’ll have a quick tour of the various ‘publication’ options and throw ourselves into some cool examples that have already been made as well as discussing how 360 content can be ‘integrated’ with conventional content on ‘conventional’ platforms.

This isn’t just a very informative day, you’ll need to make sure you wear some sturdy shoes as we’ll be ‘travelling’ to some amazing places as well!
