Registration for the 13th ASEF Journalists Seminar (ASEFJS13) was more than 5 times over-subscribed. We continue to receive applications after closing date. After two years of hiatus due to the pandemic, over a hundred applications were received in a short open call of less than a month. Unfortunately, we could only accommodate 26 journalists from 20 ASEM countries in the ASEFJS13. Depending on how participants’ response to the ASEFJS13, we may have the opportunity to organise another Journalist Seminar soon so that those who missed the forthcoming event could enjoy a similar experience. We apologise for not being able to reply to each and every applicant. Please continue to look out for our announcements.
ASEFJS13 will explore the topic “Media Best Practices in the Digital Age” with four innovative modules:
Module 1: Impact Storytelling and Constructive Journalism
The changing media landscape has shifted the way audiences consume the news. This module will be discussing these issues as we investigate the relationships between media trends, framing and creating impactful stories in constructive journalism for our audiences in the digital media era.
Module 2: Constructive Journalism: optimising resilience and impact for journalists and media organisations
This module will help participants acquire new knowledge, skills, confidence and tools that they can apply to their work – and the organisations they work in/with – and help create maximum benefit for the communities they serve.
Module 3: News Production in the Digital Age: Mapping Journalistic Trends and Transformations
News production is rapidly changing in the digital age. This module helps news professionals keep up to date with these new technologies, and understand what they are capable of achieving for news and journalism, at a time when the news industry is facing challenges to keep financially viable, and credible and engaging to audiences.
Module 4: Mobile storytelling: How to tell stories to an audience on a small screen
With a larger and large audience now consuming news primarily on a mobile phone, journalists have had, for the first time, to rethink how stories are constructed. This talk, based on experiments and experience and will how journalists need to adapt.
Through ASEFJS13, journalists are expected to have a more updated point of view in journalism. This event must also be able to engage more people in Asia and Europe.
