CARIMAC launches cricket coverage workshop for reporters

The more than 1.2 billion pairs of eyes and ears on the Caribbean for World Cup Cricket 2007 call for regional reporters to go beyond the boundary to capture the sights and sounds of the game. The Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC) at the University of the West Indies promises to help reporters do this through its “Covering Cricket� workshop. This first-of-its-kind workshop runs over three days, starting February 22, and will deliver quality insight and advice on reportage of the sport in time for the matches in March.

More than a refresher, CARIMAC’s “Covering Cricket� workshop sets the foundation for reporters to fully appreciate the magnitude of the sport and the event. The workshop will track the history and politics of cricket in the West Indies; discuss the economic implications of World Cup Cricket on the Caribbean; examine the business, politics and passion around the game; and offer guidelines for reporting stories across a range of media.

The workshop will be held at on:
Thursday, 22 February - 9:30am – 4:30 pm
Friday, 23 February - 9:30am – 4:30 pm
Saturday, 24 February - 9:30am – 1:30 pm

“Covering Cricket� is the first in a series of weekend workshops created by CARIMAC. Other workshops include Advertising Management and Short Feature Production, which are scheduled to begin mid-March.
