During this pandemic, access to accurate, trusted information can literally mean life or death.

Increasingly confined to our homes, we need journalists more than ever to bring us the news, and yet they face increasing challenges: from restrictions to their movements and threats to security to accusations of “fake news”.

Corinne Perkins, Reuters Pictures’ North American Editor and Gaetan Vannay, journalist, security expert and strong believer in “boots on the ground” reporting talk to us about the state of journalism and photojournalism today: the challenges faced and why we need journalists more than ever.

The event organised by the Media & Photography Department, Webster University Geneva, will honour the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists.
