What does it mean to be a journalist, editor or publisher working in Malaysia today? We live in digital times, while the influence of print persists. We have internet freedoms, yet still contend with censorship. Social media increasingly drives business and consumption, but where does it leave traditional journalism ethics and skills?
At the inaugural Poskod Journalism Campus, we will address these issues and more. This one day event invites press and media insiders to present their ideas, while also creating debate through panel discussions.
This event is free but admittance will be by pre-registration only. For details of registration, click here.
