Rajneesh Bhandari, a multimedia student from Nepal, has been selected to participate as blogger/journalist at the 7th UNESCO Youth Forum 2011 in Paris from 17 to 20 October 2011. Bhandari is presently enrolled in ACFJ’s multimedia journalism program.
Bhandari, sub-editor/reporter at Kantipur Television Network in Kathmandu, was one of seven journalists across the globe chosen to join the forum. Its theme is ‘How Youth Drive Change.” He will report about it using new media and social media.
“This has been possible because of the multimedia journalism course at the (Ateneo) University and what I am learning so far, “ Bandhari said in a recent email message to Dr. DJ Clark, head of the muiltimedia journalism program bing administered by ACFJ under the Ateneo de Manila University.
Last September, Badhari submitted to AFP, an international news wire agency, a multimedia report on the recent earthquake in Nepal.
“ This was my first project for an international wire agency where I did all the things, filming, editing and File Transfer Protocol (FTP). The things that I learnt during the multimedia course made me confident and careful all the time,” the Nepalese reporter added.
