"I have been writing, and taking pictures of Lahore and it's surrounding areas since quite some time now. I would send in my written pieces to this or that newspaper and get them published somehow but getting my photographs out there was almost impossible for me. Largely, because I did it for fun only and because I wasn't very confident of my photography skills. Never really even showed them to anyone. It was the first time ever that I was showing some of my photographs to a friend. And that's where Hosh Media came in. Dawn is a big thing for somebody my age. Seeing my written work and photos up on Dawn.com has given me a huge boost."
Bushra Shehzad, Hoshyaar Reporter
"Hosh Media provided me the perfect chance to be able to share my work with Dawn.Com, one of Pakistan's largest media outlets.While I was out shooting and editing videos, I had imagined the sharing and publishing process would be the most difficult part of doing my freelance work, but Hosh Media gave me the chance to get to Dawn's editors in a process far easier than I could have imagined. I'd recommend Hosh Media to any of my peers travelling to Pakistan hoping to get their work recognized."
