To say mobile reporting has made a tremendous mark on media in the world over is something of an understatement. Many compelling news facts have been brought to the public’s attention through mobile reporting.
StoryMaker is an app that helps mobile reporters to improve their stories at less risk to their personal safety. Some 650 professional and citizen reporters are currently being trained to use this app in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Zimbabwe and Iraq. Bring your Android device and learn how to create a video report, audio reportage or photo essay and upload it on the spot to the social media platform or website of your choice! Learn about the app, the training programme, the editing suite and the collaborative process through which this was developed. The StoryMaker app was developed by Free Press Unlimited, the Guardian Project and Small World News.
