creative use of multimedia in reporting minority issues. The project will focus on remedying anti-Roma stereotyping in the media. Ten journalists from the Czech Republic (half Roma, half from the country’s majority group), will attend an intensive week-long training workshop in Prague.

Transitions (www.tol.org), a Prague-based media development organization, invites applications for participation in Colorful but Colorblind, a learning-by-doing project for journalists aimed at promoting the creative use of multimedia in reporting minority issues. The project will focus on remedying anti-Roma stereotyping in the media. Ten journalists from the Czech Republic (half Roma, half from the country’s majority group), will attend an intensive week-long training workshop in Prague.

What will you learn? The training will concentrate on the skills and techniques needed to produce professional quality audio-driven slide shows and video stories, covering equipment and best practices for content gathering and editing. The training will include numerous exercises, both in the classroom and in the field. We will also highlight ethical considerations of the multimedia genre and issues of sensitivity in the practice of covering under-reported peoples and cultures. Translation from English into Czech will be provided.

The training will be designed and directed by Rich Beckman, the Knight Chair in Visual Journalism at the School of Communication at the University of Miami and a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the Universidad de los Andes in Santiago, Chile.

When? The training will take place in Prague between 7 and 11 June

Reporting Assignment: The participants will then be divided into groups—each comprising one Roma journalist, one majority community journalist, and a trainer—to go on a week-long reporting assignment between 18 and 24 July to cover a story of common interest, producing a multimedia package under the guidance of trainers.

When? Reporting assignments will be conducted between 18 and 24 July.

Who Can Apply? Professional journalists from the Czech Republic with experience of, or strong interest in, reporting minority issues and multimedia are eligible to apply.

Costs: The project organizers will cover the entire cost of participation, including travel, accommodation and tuition fees. Top quality video, photo and audio equipment will be provided.

To apply, please fill out by 12 May 2010 the following online form: http://forms.tol.org/54/
