The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and Columbia University’s Tow Center for Digital Journalism have launched a global survey to map the impacts of COVID-19 on journalism worldwide, and to help reimagine its future.

As journalism faces a potential “extinction event,” this survey is urgently needed. News organizations, journalists and other media workers around the world are invited to complete it.

The survey is available English, PortugueseSpanishFrenchRussiaChinese and Arabic. Respondents can enter a drawing and win one of twenty US$50 Amazon gift cards.

The information gathered from you will be critical to identifying challenges and to help guide the future of journalism. 

The survey will feed into ICFJ and the Tow Center’s yearlong “Journalism and the Pandemic Project,” which will study:

  • How the pandemic is transforming the business and practice of journalism;
  • What threats to media freedom and journalism safety have emerged with COVID-19, and how journalists and news organizations are responding to them;
  • How journalists and news organizations are working to combat the flood of misinformation and disinformation accompanying the pandemic.

The study is part of a broader initiative by ICFJ to provide critical aid to journalists covering COVID-19 as it arguably becomes one of the most important and complex stories of our time.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has partnered on the journalism safety and media freedom aspects of the Journalism and the Pandemic Project. 

Participate in the survey in English, PortugueseSpanishFrenchRussianChinese or Arabic.
