About the centre

Vision and objectives

The Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ) produces high quality journalism, especially investigative journalism. We encourage a collaborative approach to journalism and work with freelance journalists, academics and industry. We publish our work with Reportage Online (opens an external site) and across a range of media organizations and platforms.

The ACIJ also conducts and support research into journalism and the media. We contribute to scholarly debate and research about journalism; and we promote community discussion about the relationship of journalism to political, social and cultural democracy.

We are the leading provider of continuing professional education short courses in journalism and media education.

The ACIJ also holds regular public forums on matters of public interest, hosts visits from international journalists, and is home to the George Munster Journalism Forum and the annual George Munster Award for Independent Journalism.

The Centre is a non-profit organisation based at the Broadway campus of the University of Technology, Sydney.

Members of the Centre, which was established in 1990, include staff and students of UTS, working journalists and others interested in the media across Australia.
