Local News Matters Week

The NUJ's week of action to support a vital and vigorous local media starts on Friday 24 March and will feature a series of conferences and activities each day around the UK and its regions. Journalists from all parts of the local media – newspapers, online, start-ups, radio, TV, photographers and communications – will be involved in the campaign, along with politicians, community groups, sister unions and many others who know first-hand the vital role our local media plays. Start planning now and put LNM Week on your branch/chapel agenda. Keep up to date by reading the LNM Week campaign page on the NUJ website. Contact if you have ideas to share, need speakers for a meeting or require campaign materials.



Photographers' Summit 2017

This one-day event, on Saturday 11 February, for members  who deal with pictures, images and videos will bring together industry experts to discuss the future of news, features and PR photography and will provide information on issues such as videography, copyright, privacy and new ways to make money as a press photographer. Book now on the NUJ website. You can also take part in the summit's photography competition, details on the Getting Exposure website.

Everyday Racism

The TUC is launching an online survey to identify the levels of everyday racism experienced by black workers. The survey, which will run until Monday 27 February, will be an important step in tackling racism at work by exposing and acknowledging these experiences.

Women journalists

Georgina Henry award for innovation: applicants are welcome from women at all stages of their career for this Women in Journalism (WiJ) award, worth £4,000, as part of the National Press Awards. Deadline for entries is Wednesday 1 February. More details on the WiJ website.

Training survey

We are conducting a survey of NUJ members to make sure the training we offer as a union – both professional courses and training for our trade union reps – is as relevant and focussed as it can be. Please take a few minutes to fill it in, and look out for the new course and skills events we will be offering throughout 2017. Click here to complete the survey.

Training & free workshops

NUJ employment law updates: new dates in London, Glasgow and Manchester for reps who have competed the stage 3 reps' programme to update their knowledge of employment law. There will be separate briefing dates organised for the Trade Union Act. Details of these and all reps' courses are on the NUJ website.

A Federation of Entertainment Unions (FEU) project to help media and creative workers with their careers has won its bid for another year's government funding. Members of the National Union of Journalists, Equity, Musicians' Union and the Writers' Guild are all eligible to participate in the free workshops, webinars and gain access to on-line resources. This month's free workshops are on social media for work and how to impress a potential employer and there is a webinar on strategies for success. Details and how to book on the FEU website.
