The Media Association of Solomon Islands (MASI) has joined forces with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to host a transformative five-day Mobile Journalism (Mojo) workshop.

The workshop commenced yesterday under the guidance of BBC facilitator Bashad aims to equip media professionals from all media platforms representatives with essential skills in mobile journalism and visual storytelling.

The Mojo workshop was the first of its kind in the Solomon Islands which aims to revolutionize the local media landscape by imparting participants with not only technical proficiency in mobile journalism but also advanced skills in visual storytelling.

With a keen emphasis on case-driven and self-authored story formats, attendees are set to enhance their storytelling abilities tailored to meet the demands of modern media consumption.

Of particular significance is the workshop’s focus on short-form videos, a format well-suited for social media platforms.

Recognizing the evolving nature of media and the increasing transition from traditional to digital platforms, this emphasis on short-form content promises to empower participants in their journey towards digital media proficiency.

The practical nature of the course is highlighted through field production assignments, providing hands-on experience for participants to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world scenarios.

This experiential learning approach is expected to deepen understanding and foster skill development among workshop attendees.

In light of this collaboration between MASI and BBC, Solomon Islands media practitioners stand compose to emerge as adept storytellers equipped with the tools and techniques necessary to navigate the digital landscape effectively.

The Mojo workshop signals a new era of innovation and empowerment within the local media industry, paving the way for impactful storytelling and enhanced media capabilities.
