The 2014 festival covers a wide variety of subject matters; media policy, development of digital media, communication strategies and future technological challenges, programme making, ethics, press freedom and content.
The venue for it all is the gorgious "Gateway to the Fjords": Bergen - a spectacular destination with simply an abundance of nature, combined with a vibrant cultural life.
Founded in 1988, the festival is a non-profit foundation. Over the years, the conference is established as a high-quality arena for learning, inspiration, creativity and networking.
In addition to the conference and unique networking events, we organize a variety of projects for high-school students: NMD Ung gives youth an opportunity to increase their competence and gain access to the media industry. The festival culminates in the prestigious Gullruten Award Show, the Norwegian equivalent of the Emmy Awards.
