A Discussion on the Status of Media Regulation Reforms in Australia

Having explored ‘The Future of Australian Content on Our Screens’ in 2020 with Fiona Cameron, Bridget Fair and Emile Sherman (seminar available online for CAMLA members), we will now engage in discussions with Paul Muller (CEO of ANZSA), Jane Mulligan (Director of Policy at SPA) and Clare Gill (Chief Regulatory and Sustainability Officer, Seven West Media), hosted by CAMLA’s own Nick Perkins (Ashurst), to explore the current status of media regulation reforms in the context of:

  • the current media regulatory landscape (with a focus on implications for Australian content);
  • major reform proposals announced in 2023, including the National Cultural Policy;
  • reviewing the positions of major stakeholders in the screen sector; and
  • insights into what we can expect in 2024 and beyond.
