Regional MediaThon Coming to Barbados


In a groundbreaking move, Compete Caribbean will host the first ever MediaThon in the Caribbean on November 22 & 23, 2016.

About 30 Caribbean media makers will descend on Barbados to participate in an experience designed to inspire creative ideas on science, technology and innovation (STI) within the communication ecosystem in the Caribbean.

Internationally acclaimed presenters from UNESCO, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will be among the panelists discussing reporting on emerging innovation and technology, media narratives and tools for the digital age and STI in the Caribbean media among other relevant topics.

Sonia Gill, Secretary general of the Caribbean Broadcasting Union (CBU) will act as facilitator of the panel discussions. Participants will have the opportunity to develop ideas and pitch to a panel of judges for the chance at tangible prizes.
