Andrew Quilty: Foreign correspondence and photography in the Instagram age (Student event)

An event especially for students. A camera and a sense of adventure have taken freelance photojournalist Andrew Quilty from Sydney to the global stage. He’s now based in Afghanistan, and his coverage of the conflict there has featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post and TIME, and last year won him Australian journalism’s highest honour, the 2016 Gold Walkley. In this special event for students, Andrew will speak with Heather Faulkner about his photojournalism career. Over casual drinks they’ll discuss freelancing, social media’s role in the photographer’s kit, and show some of his favourite images.

This event is presented in partnership with Nikon Australia.


This event is free for students and $10 for others — but you must register (even students).

Tools for Truth: Global media in the digital age (Free Sydney Ideas event)

Forget what you think you know about fake news. Our neighbours in Asia have been dealing with fake news, lies and propaganda for years. More recently, the same technology and social media platforms that have enabled political participation and social change have become a battleground for “weaponised” internet warriors to spread misinformation. And sometimes the perpetrators are governments themselves. Our global panel will discuss how citizens, journalists and publishers are fighting back with fact-checking, verification, data-driven reporting and collaborations across borders.

Fighting the fakes — Free event, co-presented with RMIT

Fighting the fakes:

Presented by RMIT and the Walkley Foundation as part of Storyology

An entire verification ecosystem has sprung up to fight the problem of misinformation (y’know, “fake news”). From tech solutions to business models and strategies, hear from some of the superheroes focused on rebuilding trust in journalism and facts. Our panel, a veritable justice league for journalism, are fact-checkers, contextualisers, debunkers and educators employing an arsenal of new tech solutions and old-fashioned journalistic techniques. They’ll talk about how the media’s responsibilities to the public are changing now that everyone is a witness and it’s shockingly easy to fabricate facts.

Fake News Fightback – Lunch talk, co-presented with Melbourne Press Club

President Donald Trump’s obsession with “fake news” has America a-twitter with distrust for the fourth estate. But it’s also a boon for investigative journalists. Activists are agitating, minorities are calling to have their voices heard and the Black Lives Matter movement is picking up steam.

To discuss it all we welcome two talented American reporters. Tonya Mosley is public radio station KQED’s senior Silicon Valley reporter. She won an Emmy in 2016 for her televised piece “Beyond Ferguson”, and has built a curriculum for journalists to address implicit bias. Emmy-nominated investigative reporter and author Aaron Glantz has turned his attention to Trump after years covering the war in Iraq and the lives of returned veterans. Beyond the big questions such as whether the election was fixed, he’s been digging into the paper trail on Trump associates.

At this special event jointly hosted by the Walkley Foundation’s Storyology series and the Melbourne Press Club – Mosley and Glantz will discuss the challenges for the United States and its media, and how newsrooms can work smarter, dig deeper and rebuild trust in great journalism.

THIS IS A PARTNER EVENT HOSTED BY MELBOURNE PRESS CLUB - TO REGISTER BOOK TICKETS ON THE MELBOURNE PRESS CLUB SITE.

$48 for members and students – MEAA members are eligible for the member rate. 
$68 for non-members

Rabbit holes: Choosing what to investigate
The world is full of problems, and you can’t investigate everything. It can be a long, expensive road just to verify a tip. And even if it’s good, you might have zero impact if your story lands in an unreceptive political climate. But if you focus purely on potential impact, some unpopular issues might never see daylight. Our panel of veteran investigative journalists talk about how they decide what to cover.
