The MDC and CFI will turn Al-Hal viral in 2012


Al-Hal 2.0

The MDC is happy to announce that Al-Hal will in 2012 get an online sister. With the support of Canal France International (CFI), the MDC will launch a new project focusing on online multimedia journalism called 'Al-Hal 2.0'.

The MDCs Al-Hal newspaper has throughout the past 8 years acquired a reputation of being a high quality paper tackling sensitive social and political issues in its monthly issues. Based on the same dedication to ensure and promote high professional standards for investigative journalism in Palestine, the new Al-Hal website will be a multimedia platform that will additionally serve as a model, especially for dedicated media professionals, on how to produce and edit online news in innovative ways.

In the light of the Arab uprisings throughout the past year it has become even more important for journalists to be familiar with how to professionally use the large amount of resources available on the net. The online Al-Hal will just like the newspaper serve as a source of inspiration for other mainstream Palestinian media news agencies to follow, says MDCs Director, Nibal Thawebteh.

In 2012 a dozen of Palestinian journalists from the West Bank will form the first team to kick-off the Al-Hal website's multimedia content, after benefiting from tailor-made technical and theoretical trainings provided by Arabic-speaking media experts from French media outlets selected by CFI.
