Read the final report from the 2020 Prague Media Point conference

Prague Media Point

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 solutionoriented 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.

Sincerely,

Jakub Klepal
