GIJC13 is not one conference but three: the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference (GIJC), Brazil’s 8th Abraji International Congress, and the 5th Latin American Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN). Each conference has made a major impact on public interest journalism and brings it own traditions and strengths to this unique event.
We come together at a time of unprecedented global interest in investigative journalism — in its cutting-edge skill set, its commitment to justice and fair play, and its contribution to transparency, accountability, and democracy. Although this is the eighth GIJC, it’s the first time we’ve held it in the global south. We know from past experience that our participants take home the skills, knowledge, and contacts we provide, and they do extraordinary things.
None of this would be possible without the many sponsors who contributed to this gathering. It is a broad range of supporters: major foundations, media companies, major corporations, NGOs, individuals, and GIJN’s member organizations around the world.
GIJC13’s many sponsors are listed below, by conference. Some donors are supporting all three conferences through their generous gifts. The event’s three partners — Abraji, GIJN, and IPYS — are hugely grateful for this support. Our sponsors have made a strategic investment in the future of a healthy, inquisitive global news media, one that uses the latest tools to investigative, collaborate, and disseminate some of the toughest, most important stories in the world. For that we offer a heartfelt Thank You.
