New News by the Centre for Advancing Journalism is a three-day series looking at the present and future of journalism - and an exploration of the most up-to-the-moment developments in how journalism and the media can create and support engaged citizenship. Exchange ideas directly with the industry's most respected professionals. Panellists this year will represent mastheads both new and established - including the Age, Herald Sun, Saturday Paper, Crikey and Junkee. You'll also hear from prominent bloggers, freelancers and media entrepreneurs. They'll be joined by leading journalism researchers from Swinburne University of Technology and the Centre for Advancing Journalism at The University of Melbourne.

This year we have 20+ sessions, including panels interrogating the art of interviewing, youth media, cultural criticism, branded content, surveillance and sources, new media and indigenous reporting and more. We also have keynote speeches from Mark Scott, Managing Director of the ABC, and Peter Greste, appearing at an event co-supported by the Melbourne Law School's Centre for Media and Communications Law.

The full program is available on the Wheeler Centre website at the bottom of the web page.
