Reportage is the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism’s (ACIJ) web magazine. It is dedicated to high quality independent journalism.
The ACIJ is part of the University of Technology, Sydney, which is a leader in postgraduate and undergraduate journalism in Australia. The ACIJ is a non-profit organisation which aims to promote high quality journalism, particularly investigative journalism.
Like the ACIJ itself, Reportage is committed to the idea that the media can play a role in making those in power accountable to the public. No topic or question is beyond the boundaries of Reportage. Those with power include media companies which should also be critiqued and questioned.
Reportage publishes features, news items, in-depth analysis, photojournalism, essays and ongoing reportage of issues. Our journalism is guided by the journalists’ professional ethics. Our publication is constrained by the defamation and contempt laws of Australia – which we regard as too restrictive.
Reportage strives to involve the public in open forums and encourages feedback on our stories. We recognise the importance of open dialogue and debate. We aim to fill some gaps in the media agenda and to give a voice to groups who struggle to be heard in the mainstream media.
Reportage has partnerships with several other independent media organisations, including the Wire and Pacific.scoop as well as with teritary institutions including the University of Technology Sydney and Monash University in Melbourne.
