The Association of Journalists of Macedonia in cooperation with Alfred Friendly Press Partners Institute completed a project cycle of five workshops for training of young journalists. These workshops were held over the last six months as part of a project supported by the US Embassy in North Macedonia. The main goal of the project was to improve the journalistic skills of a group of young journalists.
The workshops involved 15 young journalists from across the country, who learned how to use modern tools for creating journalistic content from media experts from the country and the United States. Also, topics such as: data-driven in-depth reporting, mobile journalism, production of audio and video materials, effective story presentations etc., were included in the training program.
After the workshops finished, the president of AJM, Mladen Chadikovski said that he expects from them to apply their skills in the future and to always work in the public interest. “I hope that the young colleagues who have successfully passed the five workshops will set a positive example of how journalists in the Republic of North Macedonia should work and report, and thus we will get a better informed audience and public,” said Chadikovski.
