BIRN Bosnia and Herzegovina and BIRN Serbia journalists, along with colleagues from seven Bosnian newsrooms and students of journalism, attended a training course in mobile video production from September 22 to 24 in Sarajevo.
The training was done by Voice of America (VOA) Broadcasting Board of Governors trainers, organised by BIRN BiH and supported by the US embassy in Sarajevo.
Thirty journalists and students from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia learnt new approaches and developed their skills in video reporting using new technologies that will be in usage in everyday reporting.
The training was intended to improve the quality and quantity of reporting relevant to web and social media audiences and enhance journalists’ ability to tell stories that engage users through text, pictures, videos and livestreaming.
The training continued the cooperation between BIRN BiH and VOA, which started at the begining of 2017.
BIRN BiH will continue to produce short video stories for VOA , and additional training sessions are being planned for the next year.
