Convergence, transmedia storytelling, interactivity, fragmentation, the rise of social media and online streaming services have transformed the production and distribution of children’s media. The Children’s Media Symposium represents a chance for the creative sector and the academic community to engage and collaborate in exploring the complex relations between this special audience and a fast-changing media landscape.
This year’s theme is “From Print to Screen” and will feature keynote presentations from celebrated children’s author Gary Crew, Oscar-winning illustrator Shaun Tan, the ABC’s former Director of Television Kim Dalton OAM, and CEO of the Australian Children’s Television Foundation Jenny Buckland. Our keynote speakers will be joined by a range of leading industry speakers who will share their experiences of creating media for children, as well established and emerging scholars of children's media who will provide context by analysing issues and trends in contemporary children's media.
