“I like Storymaker because of the ease in dealing with options and settings, along with the digital security made available for the journalist.”

Tahseen Al-Zrikiny is a journalist from Diwaniyah, Iraq, who participated in the PeaceTech Lab’s first PeaceTech Exchange (PTX). After our 3-day intensive course on creating multi-media stories using the Storymaker app, Tahseen began reporting on the plight of local farmers.

Al-Zrikiny’s story, which was recorded, edited, and published entirely from his smartphone, won the United Press Unlimited award for the Best Story of 2013 “which would have remained untold without mobile storytelling.”
