About UQ & Walkley Masterclass: Investigative Journalism

Investigative Journalism with Mark Willacy 

UNESCO Chair in Journalism and Communication Professor Peter Greste, The Walkley Foundation and The University of Queensland's School of Communication and Arts are excited to announce the final session in a series of practically-focused journalism masterclasses for UQ students.

Investigative reporting takes on an extra layer of complexity when you’re presenting it on television, such as getting people to talk on camera and illustrating intricate documents. Gold Walkley-winning journalist Mark Willacy will provide insights into the stories behind his investigations, including building trust with vulnerable sources, navigating documentary evidence, ethics and security.

Please note that in-person places are limited, so to secure your spot make sure to register today!
