BBC Arabic launches interactive media workshops

MUMBAI: BBC Arabic has announced that it will host a series of interactive workshops called The World As You See It for aspiring broadcasters across the Arab world.

The workshops are announced as the BBC prepares to launch its integrated Arabic-language multimedia offering, a first for the region incorporating radio, TV and online.

Aimed at developing talented future broadcasters in the Arab world, The World As You See It workshops will be held at universities in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Egypt and Morocco.

Experienced BBC journalists will share their knowledge and experience with media students, encouraging them to complete short video packages of stories they believe will be of wide interest. The best work will be featured on the BBC.

BBC Arabic head Hosam El Sokkari said, "The BBC wants to support and develop talent in the region and these workshops will be a first step in building relationships with the multimedia broadcasters of the future.

"I have no doubt that audiences to BBC Arabic in the years ahead will be enjoying some of the talent that emerges from The World As You See It. The initiative will also give us the opportunity to see a different young perspective on today's world."

The tutorials with BBC journalists will encourage individuals or teams to create video footage using on-campus facilities and guidance from their tutors. The BBC will provide additional support via online Q&As and downloadable tutorials.

All submissions will be evaluated by BBC journalists. All The World As You See It submissions will be in Arabic and a maximum of three minutes long. Full credit will be given to students and their university.
