Thanks to the continued support of MediaStorm, we are delighted to announce that our Grand Prize, Second and Third Place Winners will receive free access to a MediaStorm Multimedia One-day Workshop, and free access to MediaStorm’s Online Training Videos.

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, MediaStorm Executive Producer, Brian Storm, will share tips and techniques to improve reporting, editing and distributing your multimedia project.

MediaStorm Online Training Videos offer 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 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.

In recognition of their accomplishment, Brian Storm, has generously agreed to retrospectively award all of last year’s winners the same prize.

We thank MediaStorm for their commitment to assisting in the professional development of emerging documentary photographers and photojournalists from around the world.
