Trainer for Photography Masterclass (21 expert days October 2023 – March 2025) At Media in Cooperation and Transition


Media in Cooperation and Transition (MiCT) is a German non-profit organisation that implements media development projects in crisis regions. Activities focus on the interplay between conflict, media coverage and reconciliation. MiCT’s services comprise the training of journalists and media producers, programme and content development, radio and film production, magazine and book publishing, as well as media research and monitoring in conflict regions.

“Strengthening Media Capacities and Networks in the Nile Basin” aims to amplify balanced and constructive narratives around water resource management and cooperation in the Nile Basin region. The project is a collaboration between Media in Cooperation and Transition (MiCT), the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI), and other partners.

The project’s overall objective is to strengthen media capacities and networks in the Nile Basin to support constructive and solution-oriented approaches to water-related conflicts in the Nile Basin.

The specific objectives of the project are:

  • To reach a broad audience of Nile Basin citizens with in-depth, fact-based and constructive reporting on Nile Basin issues.
  • To strengthen and expand the existing network of multimedia Nile Basin journalists and media organisations, widening ownership over the network to include more stakeholders and journalists in the region.
  • To generate incentives for journalists and media houses to engage in more fact-based and constructive reporting on Nile Basin issues.

Photography plays a pivotal role in storytelling and reporting, enhancing the quality and impact of journalistic pieces. MiCT is therefore looking for a company or organisation to support the training, coaching and recognition of photojournalists in the Nile Basin.
