Global Eyewitness uses photojournalism to capture the people and communities throughout the world. The app shares photos, videos, and stories generated by journalists from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The College is committed to preparing the next generation of media professionals through a hands-on opportunity for our photojournalists to capture the human condition within emerging democracies from around the world. Students document their travels on this app as they experience them, providing in-depth reporting of people they meet and the places they go.
Previous trips have garnered media attention with their powerful stories and attracted national recognition. Past awards to the college's depth-reporting projects have included the Society of Environmental Journalists 2009 Award for Reporting on the Environment to "Ethanol: salvation or damnation?"; the Renewable Natural Resources Foundation 2007 Excellence in Journalism Award to "Platte River Odyssey," the Student Academy Award-winning documentary "Cuba: Illogical Temple," and the Pulitzer Prize-nominated "Cuba: An Elusive Truth."
The goal is to educate the world using the power of photography, video, and stories of survival. Students capture these moments in the world: past, present, and future. Each gallery offers a look into how different societies engage economic change as democracies emerge worldwide.
Global Eyewitness offers a global view at economic change through the eyes of tomorrow's journalists.
Their contribution allows you to help spread the human condition whether time, money, of word of mouth—anything helps.
