Seminar on citizen journalism – start today!

The sixth regional seminar on citizen journalism will be held on April 22-23, in Hotel City Park, Skopje, starting at 11:00am on Saturday. Citizens from Skopje, Gostivar, Tetovo, Kumanovo, Kriva Palanka and all the surrounding municipalities have the right to participate.

CIVIL shifted the weekend that was foreseen for the seminar thus leaving room for more interested citizens to be part of the big family of over 300 citizen journalists, who in the past five seminars on citizen journalism gained theoretical and practical skills on citizen activism, online activism and journalistic investigation.

Everyone interested in participating in the seminar, may register by filling out the online form on a computer or mobile phone, which takes just a few minutes. You may also apply through the email address [email protected], with a CV and a motivation letter (no more than 10 rows) in which the candidates briefly describe their skills and express their readiness to participate in the seminar.

All those who have a photo or video story that they would like to share with the public anonymously, then precisely this project is the free, uncensored space for that purpose. Everyone with a smart phone can be a citizen journalist. Start today!

For more information, those interested may contact us at 02/5209176, or send us a message at [email protected] or at the Facebook page Citizen Journalists.

Bold and decisive, citizen journalists are on the front line in the battle against media disinformation, distortion of the truth and the unprofessionalism that journalism in Macedonia is facing. Therefore, we call on all citizens to actively engage in objective and timely informing from the scene, displaying the real picture of the political situation without any cover up or censorship.

The Civic Lenses project is financially supported by National Endowment for Democracy.
