Armenian broadcasters to further their reporting skills

May 30, 2017

The EU-funded OPEN Media Hub project is to organise a training course for journalists, cameramen and editors from the Armenian media on 23-25 June in Yerevan.

The Advanced Training for Broadcasters course will cover news production, editorial and filming skills, as well as writing and editing. The participants will develop independent and objective reporting skills and learn how to cover and present complex stories.

This workshop will help to put skills into practice in real time for real outputs for the participating media outlets. Special attention will be given to telling human stories and reporting on EU-Armenia relations.

Stories and their angles will be discussed with participants and selected ahead of the three-day course. The Open Media Hub is looking for editorially relevant stories produced in an appealing and informative way.

The second aspect of the training will focus on a strand called ‘Being 20’. Developed and produced by the Open Media Hub, ‘Being 20’ is a series of short stories depicting the life and aspirations of young people in the EU Neighbourhood Countries.

The OPEN Media Hub Project aims at increasing the professional skills of journalists and media managers and supporting the production of audio-visual and online material in the EU Neighbourhood countries, which contributes to the development of independent media and the more accurate representation of EU policies and support to the region. The Open Media Hub Project is being implemented by a consortium led by the Thomson Foundation.
