Call for Applications: ADAMI Dialogue - Baku

“Video blogging: Find your expression, record it and post it!”

In the world of new media, video blogs are taking a more and more privileged space and attracting ever-wider public interest as a means of reaching online audiences.

The vlog is also a platform to positively showcase cultural diversity. Through the use of engaging content, the vlog can create dialogue for encouraging tolerance and promoting the diversity in society to an audience across countries, cultures, traditions, religions.

The ADAMI Dialogue Baku creative seminar, under the motto “Video blogging: Find your expression, record it and post it!” aims to outline the structure of this vlogging phenomenon and help participants in the creation and implementation of their own video-blogging projects.

Among the experts will be Gökhan Ekremoğlu, who works at YouTube in San Francisco, and Lena of the video blog considercologne, who will talk about the conceptual and technical aspects of the new genre and commercial opportunities for video blogging, 

In the framework of the seminar, on October 28 there will be a lecture for media professionals with Dominique Willieme, Chief Online Strategist of German-French Cultural Channel ARTE, open to the public.

The seminar is open to anyone with a video blog or an idea for a video blog, including professional journalists and representatives from TV companies working with video formats. Participants should have practical experience working with and preparing video materials.
