After careful consideration and thorough discussions, we are happy to announce that the evaluation process in all 7 countries (Albania, BIH, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Türkiye) for the EU Investigative Journalism Awards 2023 is over. Now it is time to announce the Evaluation Jury that assessed the submitted applications. The Jury, composed of distinguished experts in journalism and investigative reporting, has diligently
Media and technology are messing up with each other! They are causing confusion or chaos in some way. Can the intellectual power of media experts effectively utilise technology to make the media environment satisfying for citizens at a global level? In recent years, media literacy has become a critical factor in our increasingly digital world. As technology continues to permeate more aspects of our
Online violence and disinformation against media, journalists, activists and actors in the public sphere are common regardless of gender. Social media abuse is being used not only by authoritarian governments, terrorist organisations or what might be termed ‘bad actors’ but also by mainstream actors and political figures. The aim is to suppress critical debate, opposing opinions, and in many cases, the defence of human
Until recently, grants for media outlets operating in the Western Balkans, the broader CEE region and the European Union were mostly aimed at directly supporting the production of content. Now, the purpose of these grants has shifted from the direct funding of (news) production to accelerating the development of long-term strategic solutions and the creation of self-sustaining business models.

The call, which remained open from 8th May to 20th June 2023, garnered an impressive variety of topics, a diversity of talented authors, and
How to make readers pay for online content? The billion-euro question of modern publishing has more than one answer. Publishers have tried many tactics with various degrees of success. Some of them bet on exclusive niche content, others offer club membership with various perks, ask for donations or mix all approaches in appealing subscription bundles.  What most successful models seem to share is a
AI is, in many ways, a revolutionary event, similar to what Gutenberg’s printing press was in the 15th century, or radio, TV, and even internet in the 20th. It’s a technology that will permanently reshape society. For many of us, AI means everything we learned from multiple dystopian movies (2001 A Space Odyssey, The Terminator, Matrix, Blade Runner, …). But can AI be used
Is it possible to create, in one year, a quality information service for a region with a population of 4.3 million, including more than 2 million living in a single agglomeration comprising several cities? Yes, and successfully, as exemplified by the Polish website Slazag.pl. It was founded by several journalists who left the editorial staff of Poland’s largest regional daily, Dziennik Zachodni. Team of Slazag.pl,
