16th – 23rd October 2010

An idea that was born on the Azorean Island of San Miguel in February this year finally came to fruition for 8 video journalists.  RTP Azores and the Azores Regional Government invited Circom to send some VJs to the Azores to film stories on several of the islands. The stories would then be available for broadcast on their home stations.

The journalists have now returned home and the project has proved to be a great experience for everybody involved. Some Azorean stories have already been transmitted on MTV, BNT, HRT and TV2 while TVP will broadcast stories in November and during the Christmas period.  Coverage of the event was in the local Azorean newspapers and Pedro Bicudo the Director of RTP Azores was thrilled with the commitment and professionalism of the VJs that participated in this unique opportunity.

The VJs were “paired” with RTP colleagues and of the 9 Azorean islands our VJs made stories on 4 of them, San Miguel, Terceira, Faial and Pico.

Thanks must go to Mr. Bicudo and Célia Machado Carreiro of RTP for arranging this amazing event and also to the Azorean Government for providing the funding for travel and accommodation.

If member stations would like raw material or cut stories from the Azores then please contact Karol Cioma (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) who will put you I touch with the relevant VJ .
