Portenier bursary competition offers safety training for independent journalists exposing human rights abuses

“…The bursary provides C$3,000 towards a hostile environment course of the winner’s choosing from a range of approved course providers in Canada, the USA or Britain. It is open to qualified independent applicants of any nationality, experienced or novice, working on significant projects for which funding is in place. The rules are available on the Forum’s website.
The bursary is awarded by an independent jury with expertise in the field, including a representative of the UK-based Rory Peck Trust, which offers safety training bursaries and other support to freelancers.
Last year’s Portenier winner was Eman Helal, an Egyptian photojournalist whose work documents sexual harassment and attacks against women in her country. Applications were received from freelancers and independent documentary-makers in 25 countries.
In 2015 the Portenier was won by Jason O’Hara, a Toronto filmmaker working on a documentary about abuses in the clearance of favelas in Rio de Janeiro ahead of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. …”

6 Different Microphone Positions Compared on Voice Video

6 Different Microphone Positions Compared on Voice [Video]
I wanted to share a new video we just uploaded where Matthew Weiss compares the different sounds of various microphone positions.
Lots of shootouts already exist comparing different microphone choices, and those are certainly valuable, but you rarely see comparisons and analysis on the subtleties of different microphone positions.

The Social Media Glossary: 226 Essential Definitions
“… A glossary of common words you should know if you’re in the social media industry.
A lot can change in a year, especially in the world of social media. It can be difficult to keep up with all of the terms and slang used with the introduction of new technologies and platforms, so we decided it was time to update our Social Media Glossary. Like previous editions of the glossary, this is a living document that will continue to grow as we add more terms and expand our definitions. …”

For this special report, the Knight Center talked to several editors from Spanish-language media in various countries, and with a representative of Facebook. We selected ten cases of Facebook Live broadcasts by these media (see the bottom of this article) to reflect on the experiences of those media organizations with this new tool and the lessons learned.

“The volume of comments is 10 times greater in a live video compared with a normal video on Facebook. As for playing time, people are watching live content three times longer than they spend watching recorded material. It is an incredible tool. When you combine interactivity and real-time, it’s an incomparable force,” said Luis Renato Olivalves, director of media relations for Facebook in Latin America, in an interview with the Knight Center.
