A day without news

A new initiative ‘A Day Without News’ launches today, on the one year anniversary of the deaths in Syria of foreign correspondent Marie Colvin and photojournalist Rémi Ochlik.

The campaign organised by a group within the news and media industries, and led by Aidan Sullivan, vice president of Getty Images and founder of the Ian Parry Scholarship, seeks to raise awareness of the risks faced by journalists and photojournalists in conflict zones on a daily basis, and to lobby governments and tribunals to pursue and prosecute those who harm members of the news media.

Find out more at the campaign’s website, today’s special issue of Le Journal de la Photographie, and in a recent article by Roy Greenslade for the Evening Standard.
