The “International School of Multimedia Journalism” is a joint programme of the Institute for Journalism and Media Management at FHWien of WKW and the UCU School of Journalism aimed at connecting Austrian and Ukrainian students and fostering a mutual understanding for media systems and landscapes of both countries.
During the first project week in Vienna in August 2015, participants formed small groups to work on a multimedia feature on the general topic of migration. The project was mentored by Jens Lang (ORF), Christoph Zotter (NZZ.at), Dominik Sinnreich (Puls4) and Stefan Pollach (communications consultant).
The second week was held in Lviv in February 2016. The participants worked in groups again and created features on the topic of propaganda. The mentors of this part of the project were Andriy Pryymachenko, Viktoriia Haiboniuk, Kateryna Gornostai and Dmytro Konovalov.
In July the second International School of Multimedia Journalism was held in Vienna. Students from FHWien of WKW, UCU School of Journalism, the Danish School of Media & Journalism and Georgian Institute of Public Affairs worked on multimedia features on the general topic of Good Governance.
