He and former ieiMedia Oslo students will also give a presentation on “International Reporting” on Oct. 23 at 10 a.m.

Staffing ieiMedia’s CMA convention booth at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta will be Rachele Kanigel (co-director of the Kyoto, Japan, program), Jeff Brody (director of the Valencia, Spain, program), along with Listopad and James Carviou of the Oslo program. The exhibit hall will be open 4-8 p.m. on Oct. 26, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Oct. 27; and 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on Oct. 28.

Students Say...

I really don’t know how to convey what an incredible opportunity it is. I guess the coolest part for me was getting to investigate an issue, work with a local fixer, interview locals, talk with experts and officials, and be mentored by journalists who are actively working in the field. If you want to be a journalist, this is your chance. This program is seriously the real deal.
