Why multimedia?

Modern journalism, locally and nationally, is multimedia-journalism. The story needs detail and afterthought in print; it requires actuality and speed with no deadline and reader participation on the internet; live feeling on radio; and action on the mobile phone film-report on the net – and several versions on the local and national pages.

Social networks and blogs play more an important role.

How do the multimedia editors make decisions on the right version in the future? Norway and Denmark have multimedia houses that deal with several media – and both local and national news 24 hours a day.

How to combine print and electronic versions? How much emphasis on local news, as well as global?
In what direction the modern journalism will move and what should be adopted in the Russian media? This is what we will talk about with colleagues   in news rooms of Norway  and Denmark  and in  the Nordic Journalist Center.

NJC experts have invented an original business game which simulates the work of multimedia edition.
This is the second study visit on this topic organized by NJC   and Barents Press in collaboration with   Regional Press Institute (St. Petersburg).

Application’s form is available in Russian.
