5 pieces of #AdviceForYoungJournalists

Giants of the media innovation world recently came together at Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism to discuss media innovation and the future of journalism and they had plenty of advice for young journalists in the crowd and watching online.

Adrian Sanders, co-founder of crowdfunding for journalism platform Beacon Reader, ended the hour-long session with these five tips.

1. You don’t need anyone’s permission to publish ever again.

2. Shoot every day if possible.

3. Your first videos are going to suck.

4. Keep shooting anyway.

5. Be like “hippy crusty dude” on Vine and you’ll be fine.
