Sign up to our FREE Media Trust Cam360 Training Workshops!
PhotoVoice has been commissioned by the Media Trust to deliver a set of training workshops based on their exciting new Cam360 project, which aims to get professional journalists and citizen journalists working together on crowd-sourced citizen photojournalism, encouraging more local and diverse voices in the media. The web platform and iphone app, allow you to easily upload, share and publish your photography, responding directly to assignments set by publishers.
Last Thursday PhotoVoice’s Clare Struthers travelled to the citizen journalism beacon hub, Citizen’s Eye, in Leicester to deliver, alongside the Media Trust’s Alan Fransman, the first of these workshops, covering the basics of what makes a good news story image, to the ethics and legalities surrounding photojournalism, as well as an introduction to Cam360 itself. The workshop was a great success and all the participants were really excited about Cam360, saying they will definitely use it as way of getting their photography out there.
