Convergence – Should we adapt and how?
29th June, 6pm
This months Branch meeting will feature a panel discussion on Convergence, with photographer Edmond Terakopian and film editor Simon Ruben. Clients are always asking us to do more; whether it be video, audio, text or all three on top of photography. We’ll be discussing how to adapt to clients growing needs for content with shrinking budgets. Should photographers be doing the jobs of reporters and film-makers at all? What are the pitfalls of moving into different areas? Come along and join the discussion.
Any motions to the branch should be sent to the branch secretary prior to the meeting.

Members are also invited to the NUJ Regional Press Awards After Show Party after the branch meeting.
