Posted on

The Balkan Investigative Reporting in Albania held a two-day training on October 2 and 3 in Tirana on Mobile Journalism, MOJO, for local journalists.

Eighteen journalists from different regions of Albania, working for both national and local media outlets, participated in the training, which was delivered by Robert Sinkovic, a mobile journalism expert with the Thomson Foundation.

The training provided the journalists with the fundamental techniques of reporting and storytelling on mobile, web and other online platforms.

The reporters learned on how to create quality journalism content using best practices for producing high-quality photos and video, audio, and editing for social media, web, and other platforms – using mobile device.

The intensive workshop-style training was designed to provide senior journalists with key journalism skills using mobile phones.

This activity was part of the project “Using Big Data and Multimedia to Boost Quality and Independent Journalism in Albania” co-funded by the European Union and Swedish government and implemented by BIRN.
