Our global Training Team of visual journalists

The main strength of VJ Movement & Cartoon Movement lies in the expert knowledge of the production and online dissemination of visual journalism (video, cartoons, comics & graphical novels interactive comics and combinations).

Video journalism is a form of broadcast journalism whereby, typically, the journalist reports, shoots, edits and often presents his or her own material. Online video journalism, as a next generation television medium, is a story-telling medium that is not bound by the many constraints of traditional television journalism. Contrary to the traditional television approach where journalists are bound by time limits and other restrictions, the online video journalist can get much closer to the core of the story.

VJM Foundation believes in spreading and sharing knowledge and expertise through training of individual journalists and media organizations. In doing this, the VJM Foundation supports the development of independent media and press freedom, especially in places where they are under threat.
