I’m Philippa Law, a senior journalist/producer with specialist expertise in audience engagement, interaction and participation. Since January 2016 I’ve been Social Media & UGC Editor at the Associated Press news agency. I’m an expert in working with user-generated content and passionate about spreading good practice when working with audiences.

Previously I worked on media innovation projects at BBC R&D and the BBC Academy, and co-led GuardianWitness, the Guardian’s user-generated content platform.

For my PhD thesis (2013) I conducted research into audience participation in Welsh-language media at Queen Mary, University of London.

Radio is my first love. My background is in radio production at the BBC, where I created audio and online content for BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 7, the World Service and CBeebies. I’m especially proud to have been part of the team that produced BBC Voices, a highly successful multiplatform project which involved over 1000 members of the public.
