Our theme in 2019 is WHAT’S WORKING
Volumes have been written and numerous events have been held over the past decade lamenting the plight of the media in the modern world. Much less attention has been paid to what’s actually working. That is why the 2019 edition of the Prague Media Point will highlight inspiring examples that have managed to overcome the challenges the media are facing these days.
We encourage submissions of abstracts that focus on examples in the media that appear to be working and generating impact in the following subjects and topics, though this list is not exhaustive:
- Technology in editorial work and content deliver
- Engagement through social media
- Examples of solutions or constructive journalism
- Trust-building techniques
- Different forms of storytelling
- Youth-driven news delivery
- Innovative business and ownership models
- Diversity in the newsroom
- Minority media
We offer discounted group rates for non-presenting attendees and further discounts for students. For more information contact Dagmar Caspe, Project Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
