  • Network with leading professionals in an informal setting.

In an increasingly unstable world, independent media are facing unprecedented challenges. Journalism’s role in a democracy to represent the public interest is being actively undermined by declining audiences, diverse social media actors, and business and political interests. Trust in the media is in a dire state. At the same time, digital technology offers still untapped potential and opportunities for media to recover their crucial place in society, especially through offering quality journalism in varied formats to both traditional and neglected audiences.

Over the course of three days, we will tackle a wide range of related themes, through a series of academic presentations, panels with some of the top editors in Europe, and keynote speeches from both scholars and media experts. We’ll explore innovative business models, new technique in reporting, artificial intelligence, methods for reaching new readers, and reestablishing trust in the media in these times of political and societal turmoil.

Prague Media Point is an annual international conference, dedicated to discussing the changing media landscape in a professional, political, economic, and social context. The aim is to gather leading scholars, journalists, media executives, and other experts to exchange experiences, establish new relationships and debate the challenges facing both traditional and new media. The issues are presented in an international context with a focus on the Central and Eastern European regions with their particular issues to solve.

Prague Media Point is organized by Transitions, a nonprofit organization established to strengthen the professionalism, independence, and impact of the news media in the post-communist countries of Europe and the former Soviet Union, and KEYNOTE, an organization specializing in organizing conferences and events that lead to cutting-edge international encounters, bring new ideas to life, and facilitate a unique networking experience.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe. Detailed information about the Visegrad project is available here.
