Friday October 14, 2011 -- Graphic News is celebrating its 20th anniversary!

To mark this event we are holding a one-day workshop and evening reception here in London for our subscribers and friends.

  • The Workshop: In 20 years, graphics have changed beyond recognition, with new opportunities offered by each generation of software. The workshop, Graphic News in Motion, brings together speakers with a wide range of expertise to discuss the challenges of producing infographics for multiple platforms, and the software that makes this possible.
  • The Networking Session: A moderated networking session in the afternoon will enable participants to introduce themselves and give a 5-10 minute presentation about their work. This is intended to encourage the exchange of ideas and views between participants.
  • Evening reception: This is being held at Stationer’s Hall, 7.30 to 11pm, and will include refreshments and a buffet.
  • Olympic sites: For those wishing to visit the sites of the 2012 Olympics whilst in London various tours are possible.
Booking and cost: There is no charge but places are limited so please book as soon as possible to reserve your place, using either the Online booking form or fax or email your details.

Any questions, please contact Jane Brodie ( Tel +44 20 7404 4280 Mob +44 7789 552 608)

We look forward to welcoming you on October 14. This is a unique opportunity to meet the team that produces the Graphic News Service. Let us hope there are no major breaking news stories that day!

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
