On 18 and 19 May, some 150 colleagues from our Dutch and Belgian titles met in Utrecht for the first edition of the Mediahuis Festival of Journalism.

They enjoyed two days of insights, knowledge sharing, workshops, debates and expected and unexpected encounters. Rasmus Nielsen, director of the Reuters Institute at Oxford University, kicked off the first edition with his thoughts on the most recent developments in the world of news media.

Other topics that were covered included the appeal of crime reporting, the approach to regional investigative journalism, using data to write better stories and to find the right audiences, how podcasts can be a success and much more. It was a real celebration of journalism. You can watch this year’s after movie here
