Russian news agency and radio Sputnik will hold a multimedia workshop for 40 young journalists and media managers from Cambodia and 33 other countries in Moscow from November 29 to December 1.
The workshop will mainly focus on the work of a news agency, online media, creating attention-grabbing content and there will also be open discussions.
Lectures will be combined with tours of the newsroom and studios of Sputnik International News Agency and Radio.
The workshop is aimed at sharing the agency’s specialised skills and providing opportunities for the young journalists to make high-level international contacts to give them a competitive edge in their careers.
“One of the goals of the SputnikPro project is to provide young professionals with a platform to share experiences and foster dialogue,” Anton Anisimov, deputy editor-in-chief of Sputnik, said.
He noted that Sputnik News Agency and Radio is looking to expand its newswire and radio services to Southeast Asia in the near future, especially in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.
SputnikPro, an international project for journalists, students of specialised universities and employees of press services, is aimed at sharing experience with foreign colleagues, developing international media communications and intercultural relations between journalists.
The project is being implemented with the assistance of the New Generation programme of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Russians living abroad, and international NGOs.
Headquartered in Moscow, Sputnik is one of the largest international media agencies in Russia, with news websites in 32 languages. It also broadcasts analogue and digital content in Russian, English and French to 80 cities worldwide and on the Internet.
