Joanna Lam writes that The Knight Digital Media Center at the University of California-Berkeley is accepted applications for all-expense-paid fellowships to attend two upcoming Multimedia Reporting and Convergence workshops. The fellowshipsare for mid-career journalists wishing to advance their multimedia skills. They offer intensive, short course multimedia training that covers all aspects of multimedia news production; from basic storyboarding to hands-on instruction with hardware and software for production of multimedia stories. Participants will be organized into teams to report on a pre-arranged story in the Bay Area, and then construct a multimedia presentation based on that coverage. They will be held at the University of California, Berkeley.
