The Regional TechCamp ended successfully yesterday.

Close to 30 regional journalists and communication officers returned home with added informative information, editorial and technology skills which they had learnt in the three-day training.

Award winning journalist and strategic communication executive, Linda Roth, and BBC News YouTube editor Marko Zoric facilitated the three-day TechCamp.

It was organised by the United States Embassy as an interactive regional capacity building workshop. It aimed to connect civil society, NGOs and journalists with skills to improve their organisation’s social media presence locally, regionally and globally.

Two Fiji Sun staff members were part of the TechCamp.

“We are in the digital age and we are trying to catch up with the global technological trends.

“Through the assistance provided by the experts at the Tech Camp, hopefully we can be on par with the rest of the world especially in connecting with the public through social media,” Fiji Sun information technology supervisor and Digital journalist, Atama Tamanilo said.
