Since its inception five years ago, the IAFOR Documentary Photography Award has enjoyed the support of MediaStorm. MediaStorm is an award-winning film production and interactive design studio telling stories that matter with the depth they deserve. For their ongoing commitment to assisting the growth and development of young and emerging documentary photographers and photojournalists, we are truly grateful.

The Grand Prize, Second and Third Place Winners will receive tuition free access to a MediaStorm Multimedia One-Day Workshop in New York. MediaStorm’s one-day workshops provide participants an overview of multimedia storytelling approaches while engaging participants in discussion about the most appropriate ways to create a multimedia story. Through real world examples, Brian Storm will share tips and techniques to improve reporting, editing and distributing your multimedia project*.

This year’s winners will also receive free access to MediaStorm’s Online Training Videos. MediaStorm online training videos provide essential tools and techniques proven to enhance multimedia production quality. Created from years of live training experience, the online training videos provide useful tips no matter what your role in today’s multimedia industry. MediaStorm’s award-winning team of producers and cinematographers lead the online training videos with lessons learned from their experience producing multimedia publications and training groups and organisations around the world. The MediaStorm online training video series now includes five modules. The Reporting and Post-production tracks teach the theory and skills needed to successfully create multimedia stories.
