The Annual Inter-University Media Challenge is here and guess what, it’s taking a whole new track as its going virtual this year (2020) due to the COVID-19 ripple effects.
The Media Challenge that will be running from September to November this year, will be hosting virtual trainings for university journalism students in Mobile Journalism, Youth Participatory Radio Journalism and Mobile Podcasting, and Solutions Journalism during the Covid-19 Era.
Each one-week training will include group online calls, participation in MCI (Media Challenge Initiative) online courses, personalized mentorship, inspirational guest speakers, and your commitment to cover stories in your communities.
