Daniel Seed

Stringer Press
Daniel Seed graduated his Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Qld in 2016. He is currently writing an Honours thesis on hyperlocal journalism projects in diverse communities. This research is analysing hyperlocal media case studies which are adapting traditional journalism techniques to better serve the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse communities. His current social journalism project, Stringer Press, is the practical application of this research. Stringer Press aims to bring better media access to diverse populations in Logan, Queensland and was shortlisted for a 2017 Walkley Foundation Innovation Grant. Through an online and targeted print presence, the project has a core focus of providing media access to marginalised communities, particular Indigenous and migrant voices, through a collaborative, immersive model. He has previously travelled to China and South Africa as part of an International Relations & Diplomacy delegation with the International Scholar Laureate Program, with delegates from nations across the globe.
