SYN’s workshop participants can learn skills in audio and video production, digital storytelling and hear tips from young journalists working in the media industry. SYN has partnered up with a number of schools and organisations to run workshops for young people. Check out workshop recordings and the audio and video material that workshop participants have created.
Crikey senior journalist, Andrew Crook, and national community radio presenter for 3CR, Maja Graham, discuss interview questions, working to deadlines and finding the right talent and the right angle for a current affairs story. This workshop was faciliated by Panorama, SYN’s flagship news and current affairs program.
This workshop was part of the Signal workshop series. The Young Journo workshops bring journalists working in the Australian media to Signal, to talk to young people about working in journalism.
