The School of Data Journalism at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia is just around the corner! Altogether there were a total of 250 applicants who signed up for the workshops, and most of which had 20 places each. This confirms the view that there is a need, and significant demand, for these kinds of hands-on training events. 

If you're interested to learn about data journalism but haven't received a place in the workshops you can still attend the panels, where no registration is required. The panels attempt to provide answers to crucial questions for aspiring data journalists, editors and decision-makers in newsrooms:

  • What can aspiring data journalists learn from the successes of the past?
  • How can data journalism save your newsroom?
  • How do you start a data journalism operation?
  • How can you become a data journalist and what do you need to do?

If you cannot make it to the festival this year don't despair - many of the sessions will be recorded and we will make sure the course materials are available online.

For more information, be sure to visit the website. Looking forward to seeing you there!
