Welcome, everyone! Here’s the program for the 8th Global Investigative Journalism Conference, (#GIJC13), scheduled for October 12-15, 2013, in beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It’s the first time we’re holding the GIJC in the global south, and we’re combining it with two other key events in journalism: the annual Latin America Investigative Journalism Conference (COLPIN), and the International Congress of ABRAJI, Brazil’s investigative journalism association. Panels and workshops will be available in languages as marked: English (Eng), Portuguese (Port), Spanish (Span). Plenary and showcase panels will be translated into all three. There will be streaming video available for all plenary and showcase panels and all those held in the RDC auditorium (C1). We look forward to seeing you in Rio!

GIJC13 is the proud host for the awarding of three sets of international journalism honors: the Global Shining Light Award for investigative journalism under threat or duress in developing and transitioning countries; the Daniel Pearl Award for cross-border investigative reporting; and the Latin American Investigative Journalism Awards. The winners (and panelists) will be announced the night before at the conference awards ceremony. Here's a chance to hear how these journalists did their stories -- and what they recommend to others who want to do similar work.
