Will I be able to write articles about art projects undertaken by myself or the company that I own or work for?

As a general rule, no. Stories that focus on aspects of a student’s business, either directly or indirectly, may present a conflict of interest. We are very cautious wherever there is potential for conflict of interest or bias, as are most media organisations, and our policy applies to all staff, contributors and student journalists. While we consider each story idea on a case-by-case basis at the time that it is presented to us, in all cases we must attempt to maintain as much objectivity and impartiality as possible.
