Last week's news from the TrustMedia team!

Monday marked the return of our Programme Director, Jo, who had been away at the annual NewsXChange conference in Cascais, Portugal from Wednesday to Friday November 2-4. The conference brings together senior executives from the news industry and from around the world to discuss and debate issues in the media.

Cascais was also the location for last week’s Crises and Disaster Reporting course. Participants from all over the world were given the opportunity to attend NewsXChange sessions on ‘Japan’ and ‘A Disaster in Your Country’.

Other courses over the last week included Crises and Disaster Reporting in Hong Kong, and a Health Reporting course in Beijing in conjunction with Tsingua University. There have also been some great new  blog posts from our alumni on the TrustMedia website, sharing experiences about climate change in Kenya and stories from our recent Writing and Reporting course in London.

Also new on the website is our brand new multimedia video sharing the stories of the fourteen African participants on our recent Women's Health and Opportunity Reporting course in Johannesburg in partnership with GBCHealth.

Coming up on Monday 14th November is the official launch of Aswat Masriya in Cairo. Aswat Masriya is TrustMedia’s new Egyptian Elections news and information website, which provides Egyptians with vital news and information about the upcoming elections in Egypt, and is run by a team of local journalists in Cairo.

We’ve had a wonderful response to the Arabic language Aswat Masriya site so far, and an English version will be available in the coming week, we'll keep you posted. Check back to the TrustMedia website for photos and news from tonight's launch party!

We have a couple of upcoming courses with open deadlines! Take a look:

Last of all; for all the budding journalists out there, applications for the Reuters Journalism Trainee Programme 2012 and the Reuters Summer 2012 Global Journalism Internships are now open.

Keep following us on twitter and Facebook for the latest news and pictures from the team here and from our courses all over the world!

Until next week,

TrustMedia Team
