Where to start as a foreign correspondent

Instagram Live  | Thu, 4 Nov | 12pm (UTC)

For the third series of our OWM in convo IG Live events, we’re hearing from the winners of the One World Media Awards 2021 – from how they took their first steps in the industry, to some of the best advice they’ve learned along the way, as well as an invaluable peek behind the scenes of their award-winning reporting.

For the next session, we’ll be joined by multi-award-winning senior producer and foreign correspondent for Al Jazeera 101 East, Drew Ambrose.

Winner of this year’s OWM International Journalist of the Year Award and nominee for the Digital Media Award for The 5$ Forest, Drew has produced over 80 television documentaries and long-form digital projects for Al Jazeera across the Asia-Pacific. During that time Drew has also reported on some of the biggest humanitarian crises in the region including the Rohingya Refugee Crisis, Sri Lanka’s Easter Sunday Bombings and Typhoon Haiyan.

Join us for this Instagram Live session as Drew shares insights into his award-winning work, his experience navigating a career in international media and discusses the challenges he has faced from those who would wish to silence his reporting.

The conversation was streamed live on our Instagram.
