Visual Storytelling: the challenges faced by journalists working with images
Images and footage are incredibly important in today's digital news landscape. Imagery transcends language, conveying stories in a compelling way to audiences around the world. It affords us a window into warzones and protests, giving us a better sense of the realities on the ground. But it comes with its own set of challenges.

There is growing concern about the widespread proliferation of disinformation, with doctored images and deep-fake videos helping to sway public opinion. However, the legislation that is introduced to tackle the issue is often abused to silence independent or critical journalism. There are a number of other legal threats that face visual journalists, as demonstrated by those arrested when filming protests, or facing lawsuits for their cartoons.

We will be hearing from an expert panel about the challenges that come with visual journalism. Join us on January 25th to hear from them about their experiences of not only pursuing visual journalism, but defending those who do.
