Sourcing and verifying eyewitness media from the social web is now a standard requirement for many journalists, whether reporting breaking news events or investigating atrocities. In this workshop, Claire Wardle and Andy Carvin will present some best practice techniques for reducing the traumatic impact of viewing and investigating graphic imagery. They will also offer advice and guidance for limiting exposure both inside and outside of the newsroom and alert participants to the negative aspects of livestreaming, autoplay and looping features that can dominate the social feeds of their audience.

Organised in association with theĀ First Draft News Coalition.
