Journalism of the Digital Future project
Implementation years: 2007–2014
Under Journalism of the Digital Future project, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation helped Ukrainian journalism with the transition from Soviet school to international media standards. The project’s participants included over 150 journalists and editors from 68 national and regional media, who gained new practical knowledge and skills in multimedia journalism.
The project’s best students underwent training in the United States and the United Kingdom, and visited editorial offices of the world’s leading media: The New York Times, National Geographic, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, The Daily Telegraph and other.
Thanks to this project, editorial offices were able to borrow modern work methods from their Western colleagues and improve the quality of their own media products.
