NMA Announces Journalism Matters Dates for 2020

The News Media Association will run its Journalism Matters campaign from 5 to 11 October 2020, after it was postponed earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign will highlight the vital importance of trusted and accurate journalism produced by the news media industry during the pandemic and the ongoing threat to news media posed by the tech giants.

Journalism Matters will also showcase the industry’s powerful campaigning and various initiatives during the crisis.

The annual Making a Difference online public vote will be held for the best national and local newspaper campaigns of the past year.

The campaign will also include a #trustednewsday on 8 October which will highlight the challenges of reporting on coronavirus issues.
