Media@ção Competition – 2024 EDITION


The aim of the Media@ção Competition is to incentivise critical, responsible, and creative use of the media through citizenship and freedom of expression. It is aimed at all basic, secondary and vocational schooling students.

The theme for the 2024 Media@ção Competition  was “The Media, Human Rights, and Peace” and aimed at promoting reflection on the role of the media in the current context of threats to peace and human rights.

There were many different approaches to the theme, yet all required associating the issue of human rights and/or peace with the role of the media, which is why some of the assignments received could not be recognised, as they didn’t include that relationship.

The results of the Media@ção Competition 2024 are as follows:
