NEW TODAY FROM APME
Donate $80 for APME's 80th year
APME first met as a group in French Lick, IN, in 1933.
Eighty years later we’ll return to Indiana. The Associated Press Media Editors meet in conference Oct. 28-30 in Indianapolis.
A lot has changed over those 80 years, but our organization remains strong. We sport a new name that brings print, digital and broadcast together, and we’re proud to tout a NewsTrain program that’s in its 10th year and effective as ever in helping journalists.
How can you help this great organization stay strong?
Donate $80 in this 80th year and receive a special gift of an APME80 Everest mug. Only 80 of the mugs are available – first come, first serve.
You can make the donation and pick up the mug at the conference. But for those unable to attend just send Sally Jacobsen the donation or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212 621-7007.
Send a check made out to Associated Press Media Editors Foundation (mark it for APME80) to APME, c/o Sally Jacobsen, The Associated Press, 450 W. 33rdSt., New York, NY 10001.
You may also contribute online by filling out the form and selecting APME80 from the donation options.
Donations to the APME Foundation are tax-deductible.
Register for the conference today!
Announcing a New Survey of Media Credentialing Practices
The National Press Photographers Association is very pleased to join with the Digital Media Law Project at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, together with the Investigative News Network, Free Press, Journalist’s Resource, and the Nieman Journalism Lab, to announce the launch of a new study on media credentialing. We invite newsgatherers of all types to participate.
Even as the very concept of journalism evolves to accommodate dramatic new ways of gathering and interacting with information of critical public importance, the idea of media credentials remains deeply embedded in the practice of journalism in the United States. Dozens of laws at both the state and federal levels condition the right to engage in newsgathering activity on the receipt of credentials; police departments use press identification to separate journalists from protestors subject to arrest; and political parties limit access to vital aspects of the democratic process to those approved by campaigns. And yet, systemic understanding of credentialing practices and standards is very poor, with public attention normally being limited to discrete issues as they arise.
We welcome participation in the survey from all who consider themselves to be involved in gathering news for publication, including professional and citizen journalists, activists who publish news content as part of their activism, and independent bloggers who write about current events. If that sounds like you, you can take the survey at http://www.dmlp.org/survey. We hope you will join with us in this effort!
