There are many portfolio and publishing platforms available online which allow journalists to showcase what they are made of.

The tickets (£190+VAT) give you access to the full-day conference on Wednesday 7 November 2018 and include lunch and refreshments, as well as after-event networking drinks and a delegate ‘goodie’ bag.
