Preview: REVEAL @ Prix Italia
- Jochen Spangenberg
- On September 14, 2015
The summer is almost over, and we are in full swing again. That includes project dissemination activities. One upcoming event at which you can meet and find out about REVEAL and related verification issues takes place as part of Prix Italia in Turin on 21 September 2015.
On 21 September 2015, Jochen Spangenberg will participate in a 3-hour panel session at Prix Italia, Turin, entitled “News and User-Generated Content”. In the session, the panel will be talking about the role of user-generated content / eywitness media in the news business, related challenges, strategies, pitfalls and more.
Obviously, verification of UGC (or eywitness media) will also feature heavily in it, so the event is an ideal opportunity to showcase what we are doing in REVEAL.
The organisers have put together an impressive line-up. Jochen is joined by
- Adam Rendle, lawyer at Taylor Wessing and an expert in legal aspects of social media usage;
- Anne-Marie Lupu, TV news editor at Eurovision / EBU;
- Dhruti Shah, journalist at BBC News / World Have our Say;
- Julien Pain, editor at France 24‘s Les Observateurs; and
- Malachy Browne, managing editor and Europe anchor at Reportedly.
The session is moderated by Jenni Sargent of Eyewitness Media Hub and Tom Trewinnard of Meedan / Checkdesk.
If you happen to be in Turin later in September or – even better – if this has inspired you to go to Prix Italia 2015, we look very much forward to welcoming you there. Hopefully, see you in Turin on the 21st!
If you cannot be there in person, you may want to follow the event on Twitter by using Reveal’s Twitter presence or those of the participants. The official Hashtag of the week is #PrixItalia2015.

UPDATE: in an earlier version of this article, Caroline Bannock, UGC social and community editor at The Guardian and Mark Little, founder of Storyful, a company he recently sold to News Corporation, were listed as participants. Unfortunately, both had to cancel their participation due to other commitments.
