The World Press Freedom Conference 2020 was a unique experience to network with press freedom defenders from all around the world! During 2 days, viewers participated in interactive debates and watched interviews, previews and WPFC TV’s recaps about the most pressing issues facing the media in these unprecedented times. They could also enjoy exhibitions curated by World Press Photo, and Cartooning for #PressFreedom. The conference also offered a great selection of films and documentaries on press freedom. These interactive features are still available on the conference platform until 1 January 2021.
