First in the area of the Western Balkans, ANTIDOT launches a unique specialist program in the field of journalism called Media Campus. The best final-year students of journalism, postgraduates and young professionals from the region are given a chance to master new media practices, digital and network journalistic skills, as well as the most recent techniques of editing and managing the media.
Why does ANTIDOT launch this specialist program? There are several reasons for that. Firstly, after several months of careful analysis ANTIDOT has come to the conclusion that students and young journalists in the whole region are not given enough opportunities to actually apply the acquired knowledge, and to, at the same time, acquire new knowledge through direct practice. Secondly, this lack of opportunities for young professionals in the field of journalism and the media arises from the fact that there are no specialist programs of this type or are very expensive. Thirdly, apparent tendency of young, educated people in the region to eliminate multiple barriers in mutual communications, both at the professional and at the institutional level, fails to produce sufficient response in the media and political environment. Fourthly, there are no specialist programs with adequate quality which can train young people, especially those who already have several years of experience, to perform the most responsible editorial and management positions in the field of journalism and the media. In response to this situation ANTIDOT launches a regional specialist program in the field of journalism and the media.
