Earlier this month, Yan sat down with Vietnamese photographer Dat Vu and Cambodia-based Italian photographer Thomas Cristofoletti and chatted about photo and journalism collectives. Thomas is a co-founder of Ruom, a journalism collective focusing on social issues and stories. Dat is part of Matca, a newly-founded photo platform for Vietnamese photographers. It’s always important for photographers to have a community to share on-going work, to exchange ideas and to initiate collaborations. Dat and Thomas talk about the opportunities and challenges their collectives face.

Andrew Donohue, managing editor of Reveal, from The Centre for Investigative Reporting discusses one of the organisations collaborative multiplatform investigations ‘Rape on the Nightshift’. The project investigates the sexual abuse of immigrant females in America's janitorial industry, specifically, the vulnerability of these women to sexual harassment and rape. It also delves into the companies, which in many cases have failed to protect their workforce. As well as being a gripping investigation, it’s a multiplatform story, produced as a radio and video documentary, as well as a long-form text piece. The online landing page for the investigation has an elegant watch, read or listen option and whereas we often look at projects which incorporate a number of mediums to tell a single story - this is a single story which allows viewers to choose the way they prefer to consume the story. We discuss the approach that the reporting team took and audience engagement.
