Please excuse this promo but it’s too good to pass up.
Our Say (Democracy is Not a Spectator Sport) has a challenge:
Senior executives from media organisations will answer the most voted question at the 2011 New News Conference on Saturday 27th of August.
Not only that, the person who asks the question voted most popular will be invited to join the media leaders on the panel (click here for details). Ask and vote for questions, you want answered by the people who run our media organisations.
You could be sitting with Mark Scott (Managing Director of ABC), Greg Hywood (CEO of Fairfax Media) and Sophie Black (Editor of Crikey) to discuss issues with media, journalism and the coverage of politics in news. This is a unique opportunity for you to keep Australian media leaders to account.
My question: ‘What skills will be essential for journalists in the newsroom of 2050?’
You could vote for it here or post your own question. What a hoot if we could get someone from the Café on the panel!
