There will be three sessions aiming to inspire and advise on how to work as a freelancer and get your work commissioned, as follows:
- In conversation with Sky’s leading Special Correspondent, Alex Crawford; In this special conversation with One World Media Vice-Chair Phil Harding, Alex will discuss life as a foreign correspondent. She’ll talk about the essential skills you need for this competitive industry, how to get your foot in the door and how to stay safe in an increasingly dangerous occupation. There will also be time at the end of the session to ask Alex questions and advice.
- The Business of Freelancing; In an increasingly competitive market where entry-level jobs are thin on the ground, how do you get your foot in the door? Become a freelancer! Our panelists will share their wealth of experience in navigating the freelance world and will advise on the pitfalls and challenges, what to avoid and how to stay afloat. Q & As will follow the session.
- Meet the commissioners; So you have a story in mind, but how do you get it commissioned? This panel brings together senior commissioners who are on the look-out for international stories. They’ll help you understand what kind of content they publish, how you can approach them and what they look for in a pitch. Q & As will follow the session.
