A Day Without News?
February 22nd, 2013
London, 22 February 2013
A group from within the media and photojournalism industries have joined forces to raise awareness of the risks faced by journalists and photojournalists in war zones on a daily basis, and to lobby governments and tribunals to pursue and prosecute those who harm members of the news media.
Led by Aidan Sullivan, vice president for Getty Images and founder of the Ian Parry Scholarship, A Day Without News? will launch on February 22, the one year anniversary of the deaths in Syria of legendary correspondent Marie Colvin and photojournalist Rémi Ochlik.
