On 2 and 3 May, it’s finally happening: The doors of STATION Berlin will open for #MCB16 and #rpTEN. For two days, Berlin will once again be the place for media- and Net-policy debates and media-industry discussions. For the third time, MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB) will take place in parallel with re:publica. Together, the two conferences create a symbiosis that is plainly unique in the European conference landscape. The top-quality programme draws national and international experts and decision-makers from TV, film, radio, print, online, mobile, social media, politics, technology, business, culture, and academia. Visitors from at least 60 countries are expected, with a mix of participants ranging from start-up founders and Net activists to media policymakers and global industry players. This year, we expect nearly 8,000 attendees at the two events, even more than last year.
And the winner is...Press Conference: „The Bobs – Best of Online Activism“
For the first time, the international jury of the Bobs will announce the winners at the Media Convention Berlin. Deutsche Welle (DW) has been awarding „The Bobs – Best of Online Activism“ since 2004. The award honors outstanding dedication for the strengthening of freedom of speech and civil societies in the web. 2.300 entries were considered this year.
