MEAA Journalist Code of Ethics #3

1 July 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm AEST


MEAA and The Walkley Foundation present – The full picture: Manipulated images and stolen stories

This third session in a series of webinars exploring MEAA’s Journalist Code of Ethics focuses on plagiarism and presenting pictures and sound which are true and accurate.

Our expert panel will discuss when following a story becomes stealing, and how to fight back against plagiarism. Hear from working journalists, editors and a photographer about media’s ethical obligations around manipulation of photos, videos and audio, including manipulation by omission.

The session will feature presentations on the legal and technical aspects, a panel discussion and audience Q&A.
