Reporting Change in MENA

September 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

The project Reporting Change will run between 2012 and 2014, in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch aim to report on and support democratic transitions in the Middle East and North Africa, using complementary approaches — visual journalism training in the case of World Press Photo, and research and advocacy in the case of Human Rights Watch.‎

There are two main goals of the Reporting Change training program. First, to train strong, professional, and self-reliant visual journalism communities in the Middle East and North Africa. And second, to document and exhibit local perspectives of the regional changes.

Starting in December 2012, three workshops will be held for 36 photojournalists from Algeria, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia. These workshops aims to improve their technical, journalistic, and visual skills. Apply here.
