The European Festival of Journalism and Media Literacy

Free registration for Zagreb is open

European Festival of Journalism and Media Literacy

We live in a world where information is in abundance, but accurate news is not always easy to find…
Voices emerges to bring citizens, journalists, and media professionals closer to each other.
We want to celebrate the pivotal roles journalism and the informed public play in societies while fostering critical thinking around disinformation.

The second edition of the festival will take place in Zagreb on 28 February - 1 March 2025. During two days, the festival will explore crucial themes shaping our relationship with information and media nowadays through talks, interactive workshops, exhibitions, and networking opportunities.

Before Croatia, Voices kicked off in Florence back in March 2024. Over 1300 participants attended sessions tackling artificial intelligence and journalism, disinformation, safety of journalists, the challenges within media economic models, media literacy, elections' integrity, EU legislation on media, digital parenting, and digital well-being, among others.

The festival is an itinerant initiative that moves across different European cities to engage with different communities, while emphasising media freedom and media literacy as essential elements for the functioning of our societies

Voices grants 10 awards for 1000 euros each to young journalists and media literacy advocates
