The EU-funded project OPEN Media Hub  is organising an Advanced Broadcast Training workshop for Television reporters and cameramen/picture editors in Tunis on 23-25 November 2016. Simultaneously, a Mobile Journalism workshop for journalists from Libya will be held on 23-27 November.

The three-day Advanced Broadcast Training workshop will focus on real-time production of news stories related to border security and migration issues with special attention to European projects in the Tunisian and regional context. The goal is to develop the relevant skills of the participants, especially story telling techniques in news production, writing to pictures, filming and editing of news stories.
The Mobile Journalism workshop for Libyan journalists will focus on the latest techniques of reporting for mobile, including advanced news-gathering, production, visualization and distribution techniques. During the five days, participants will produce content in real time and practice advanced reporting techniques focusing on issues relevant to the current developments in Libya. The deadline for application is Thursday 17 November 2016 at 12:00 am.
The OPEN Media Hub project, funded under the OPEN Neighbourhood Programme, aims at creating a virtual media hub spanning the two regions, in order to contribute to the development of independent media and to a more accurate presentation of EU policies in the Neighbourhood regions, through the creation of a network of journalists. The OPEN Media Hub will provide skills to journalists and media managers through the fostering of professional networks, the provision of hands-on workshops, of journalist exchanges and support to audio-visual and online production.
