A Word from the Prague Media Point Co-Chairs

Updated: Mar 2, 2021

Dear colleagues,

In 2020 we were confronted with a completely new situation that poses

many ongoing challenges to our professional lives.

Media outlets have been striving to keep the public informed about the

pandemic while continuing to report on a multitude of other crucial topics:

disinformation, populism, and climate change, to name a few. While trying

to cover these issues, independent media outlets have been squeezed

financially as their audiences become less willing to pay for content due to

the economic uncertainty brought by the pandemic.

Nevertheless, being a journalist means not ever settling into the comfort of

what has been but rather meeting the challenges of the now. Despite the

bleak situation, so many in the journalistic community have risen to the task.

That is why we were so excited to focus again on what’s working in journalism

and the media during the seventh annual Prague Media Point conference.

From solutions journalism stories, impactful investigative journalism,

increased audience engagement through powerful COVID-19 reporting,

and insights into growth and innovation we featured those who can inspire

others and give voice to the journalistic community.

This constructive approach is at the core of what we strive to do. Our mission

is to foster the media’s work for the public good by convening solution-oriented

expert gatherings that bring together unique, regional perspectives

and provide lasting networking experiences.

We are proud to say that the conference accomplished exactly that. We hope

you enjoyed your time with us, met many like-minded people, and found

inspiration for your work.
