About us

Our story

The Asia Pacific Journalism Centre is an independent, not-for-profit news media development organisation based in Melbourne, Australia.

Since it was established in 2003, the centre has worked with more than 1000 news media professionals in the Asia Pacific region on programs aimed at promoting quality journalism.

What we do

The APJC aims to strengthen the capacity of the news media sector through training, mentor programs, study tours, international dialogue programs and consultancy.

The APJC works with news media professionals – in editorial, management and support areas – and also other professionals and individuals in the community whose work contributes to effective public communication.

The APJC’s work promotes informed and ethical reporting, greater participation of women and minorities in the media sector, and improved understanding between peoples of the Asia-Pacific region.

Our audited financial reports are submitted annually to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). From 2012-13 the reports will be submitted to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

Work with us

The APJC collaborates with participating organisations to seek funding for programs from sponsoring agencies and foundations. It is not a grant-making institution. The centre welcomes contributions from individuals, foundations, media organisations and other corporations to support its core operations. If you or your organisation would like to help support an APJC development program, contact inquiries@apjc.org.au

Internships: In 2012 the centre offers supervised internship positions to tertiary students and others with an interest in journalism and international development. For further information, contact inquiries@apjc.org.au


In setting up the APJC, the founding directors wanted to provide an effective way of tapping the energy, goodwill and resources of established news media, the foundation sector, individual journalists and others to support the development of journalism in the region.

The assumptions underlying the centre’s mission are that journalism in established societies is well placed to help international colleagues seeking professional help, that there are professional and other benefits to be gained from this engagement, and that programs to strengthen journalism bring benefits to all communities through, through promoting public accountability, informed citizenry, and engaged civil society.

A key feature of the centre’s work is its focus on personal leadership skills needed to implement change.
