375: Emma Cowdroy

Emma Cowdroy is the CEO of the Australian Associated Press.


There’s been a lot to say about media diversity in Australia, and in the light of Facebook banning news for a few days there in February - we were all held to the light of what the world looks like when there’s only one or two lenses to look through.


Media diversity is so vitally important - and the Australian Associated Press is a massive part of that.


If you can’t see it, you don’t know about it.


And the AAP has been a part of making sure those stories are being told right across the news cycle for years now.


It’s so vitally important that power is held to account.


And independent journalism, independent photojournalism has never ever been more important.
