Multimedia Storytelling @ MediaStorm
Thursday, September 2, 2010, from 3-5 pm, at Palais des Congres
The digital age is giving photojournalists extraordinary new ways to report and distribute stories. We have a greater level of authorship and an unprecedented opportunity to reach a global audience. How can the long-form, in-depth visual storyteller satisfy both their journalistic and financial needs in this environment?

Join Brian Storm, Founder and Executive Producer of MediaStorm, to see how some of the top photojournalists have redefined their storytelling capabilities to include audio and video reporting and an eye toward publication in multiple media.

Multimedia Projects by MediaStorm

Multiple projects will be screened. Walter Astrada’s project about violence against women in India will be shown for the first time at 11am and Walter will be there to answer questions. This project was made possible by The Alexia Foundation.

Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Grant accepting applications

Applications are now being accepted for the Pierre and Alexandra Boulat Grant. Deadline is June 30, 2010.

Formed in the memory of Pierre and Alexandra Boulat by friends and family after the death of Alexandra Boulat in 2007, the Association seeks to keep the spirit of father and daughter alive through making their work available to the public and creating an annual grant to a photographer and sponsoring the education of young photographers.

This 8,000 Euro grant will be awarded to a photographer covering a social, economic, political or cultural issue in a journalistic manner to “produce a story that has never been told but that the photographer cannot find support for within the media.” The grant will be awarded this fall at Visa pour l’Image in Perpignan, France.
