Christoph Griessner

Journalist at APA – Austria Press Agency
Austria
Austria Press Agency (APA) - Alfred Geiringer Fellowship

I started to participate in the world of journalism with internships during my studies in Communication Science and Musicology at the University of Vienna. An internship at APA – Austrian Press Agency in the department of home policy in autumn of 2008 led to a freelance position, while at the same time I wrote for an online music magazine.

After finishing my studies in Communication Sciences with a thesis about the journalistic quality in music criticism, concentrating on the differences between traditional media – especially daily newspapers – and online media, I started to work full-time for APA in the department for cultural affairs.

As well as topics such as theatre, fine arts, classical and popular music and cinema I focus on IT-related issues and new developments in the field of digital media and social networks. I have also been affiliated with the media department of APA since summer 2012.
