Training for TV and Online Media: Call for Applications is Open Until September 12

International Institute for Media and Information and Thomson Foundation, supported by the European Union, are happy to announce training events for TV and online journalists to make stories and video podcasts on IDP integration. The course is part of Regional Eye: Strengthening Conflict Sensitive Coverage in Ukraine’s Regional Media project.

Two final workshops out of 10 in total are to take place in Zaporizhzhya on September 26-30 and in Dnipro on October 3-7. The packages and online podcasts from previous courses in Lviv, Kharkiv, Poltava, Kyiv, Chernivtsi, Ivano-Frankivsk, Vinnytsia and Odessa are available at project web-site.

Five-day production sessions are organized so that by the end of the course each participant is going to have a timely and balanced story to be broadcast or published by their news organization.

In five days together with international trainers Deborah KellySimon Hustings and David Hands (Thomson Foundation) and local IRMI experts the participants will do their search of story ideas, research and analyse, shoot and edit and finalise their packages.

The organizers cover local transport during preparation and for interviews, photo and video sessions. Accommodation, travel (bus, 2nd class rail travel) and meals are also reimbursed.

To apply for the forum please fill in online form by September 12, Monday.
