The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), with the support of the U.S. State Department office of Africa Regional Services, is now recruiting African journalists for a series of trainings on Mobile Journalism. Journalists will enjoy 4-5 training sessions over a few weeks learning about this emerging form of new media storytelling. These Mobile Journalism trainings will cover topics such as: storyboarding; mobile video, audio, and photo editing; livestreaming; and how to create a personal brand and share stories effectively on social media. This is an exciting way for reporters to gather, edit and share news from their communities.
The program also aims to create lasting professional ties between African and American journalists rooted in a shared understanding and appreciation for the role of responsible journalism in fostering democracy. Participants are encouraged to use this program as an opportunity to expand their networks, engage in learning actionable skills and acquire helpful resources.
Upcoming sessions will cover mobile journalism, helping participants improve their reporting and navigate the changing news landscape.
The trainings are free but do require advance registration. Please direct all questions to Senior Program Director Aliza Appelbaum at [email protected].
