Last week (28-29 June 2019), Asia held its first mobile journalism conference in Thailand.

On the ground from Bangkok, Christoph Grabitz, director of media programme Asia, KAS, spoke to about why mobile journalism is taking off in the region and what it means for news organisations and journalists in highly censored parts of the world.

He said that while mojo is useful for telling under-reported stories, newsrooms need to think carefully about how to step up the technical quality as well as storytelling.

Save the date: our next social is on Tuesday, 9 July at The Parcel Yard pub near King's Cross. There will be no pitching, presentations or dress codes, just a (very informal) chance to meet and chat with other journos and news industry professionals. See you there!
