Organisers of the African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC) have announced that the 16th edition of the conference will hold online this year.
The 2020 edition of the AIJC conference which will hold in October will involve a virtual gathering and a series of online events spread over the month.
Information provided by the organisers reads: “The work of investigative journalists is too important to slow down during a pandemic. And the role of our African Investigative Journalism Conference (AIJC2020) in highlighting and boosting African investigative reporting is too vital to stop.
“So this year we have special plans for the continent’s biggest annual gathering of working journalists.
“AIJC2020 will be a virtual gathering, a series of online events spread over the month of October. There will be a full and rich programme and many opportunities to engage with colleagues, network with the best on the continent, share your work, and learn about what is happening on the cutting edge of in-depth reporting and data journalism tools and techniques.
“We will be releasing details of the programme in coming weeks and of fellowships to enable (virtual) participation.”
