Wan-Ifra webinar on election reporting and verification

Wan-Ifra, in association with DataLeads and supported by the Google News Initiative, is pleased to offer a virtual 4-module journalism training program on election reporting and verification for journalists in South Asia. In this webinar, participants will learn to protect their passwords, secure phones, and build better awareness of resources. 

This training’s main objective is to help journalists use tools and techniques while verifying news during their coverage of the elections. And, this webinar is being offered separately in English and Bangla languages. 

Nowadays, journalists are increasingly vulnerable to digital threats and misrepresentation, especially during elections. At election time, journalists become easy targets of digital impersonation and fraudulent news. Therefore, journalists need to learn how to keep themselves and their sources digitally safe and secured.

The webinar will start on 7 April 2021 and will continue on 8, 12, 15 April 2021 between 11.30 am and 1:00 pm IST in English and between 3 pm and 4.30 pm IST in Bangla. The participants of Wan-Ifra webinar will be newsroom editors, chief of staff, senior reporters, and journalists who want to know more about election coverage, reporting, and verification processes. 

The referents of this webinar include Sonia Bhaskar, Head of TV and Web Synergy, NDTV, India; Sambit Pal, Assistant Professor, IIMC Dhenkenal; Varadarajan Ananthakrishnan, Resident Editor, DataLEADS; Joydeep Das Gupta, Editor, News Sense.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
