In this episode, we look at the importance of images in conflict zones and how news organizations work with images from social media, international and local journalists. We speak to the program editor for Channel 4 news who produced the award winning series of reports ’Inside Aleppo’, Federico Escher, on how news organisations respond practically and policy-wise to the broad production of images. We also speak to Nina Grønlykke Mollerup, a postdoc at the Saxo Institute at the University of Copenhagen, on relationship between local Syrian photographers, NGOs and international news organisations. We also hear from Zeynep Devrim Gursel, who is a media anthropologist and Associate Professor in the department of Anthropology at Rutgers University and has authored a book about visualizing news in the digital age, about how the digital revolution has changed journalists and consumers.  This podcast was produced by Sowt Podcasting for International Media Support (IMS) in cooperation with the University of Copenhagen.
