Registration is now open for the 2021 Global Investigative Journalism Conference, the largest international gathering of investigative and data journalists, hosted by the Global Investigative Journalism Network.
This year’s conference will be held online from November 1–5.
JNI is playing a key role, hosting the Asia-Pacific part of the conference.
GIJC21 will feature regional programs, hands-on workshops, multiple language translation, and extensive networking opportunities. It is a chance to learn from the best in the business — award-winning journalists from around the world, pioneers of data journalism, and fearless investigators who have exposed corruption and abuses of power.
How to attend
Early bird tickets are on sale now for US$100 until September 20. General registration begins at US$125 until October 25. Students may attend for US$50.
Journalists from developing and transitioning countries may be eligible for fellowships. Fellows can attend the entire conference for free and also have access to conference videos for six month. The fellowship deadline is August 17.
More coming in 2022
The 2021 conference was originally scheduled to take place in Sydney. But, after consulting public health experts, JNI and GIJN decided to hold the in-person conference in Sydney on October 27-30, 2022.
The conference is the seminal international event in investigative journalism, featuring practical panels and workshops on the latest investigative techniques, data analysis, online research, cross-border collaboration, and more by the best journalists in the field.
The conferences have trained over 8,000 reporters and resulted in the founding of investigative teams, nonprofit newsrooms, and headline-making stories around the world.
The most recent conference, GIJC19, was held in Hamburg, Germany, in September 2019, and attracted 1,750 people from 131 countries.
