World Press Freedom Day Celebrated at IJC

Noida Film City: World Press Freedom Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in December 1993 Since then, 3 May, is celebrated worldwide as World Press Freedom Day.

“It is an opportunity to celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom; assess the state of press freedom throughout the world; defend the media from attacks on their independence and pay tribute to journalists who have lost their lives in the line of duty” said Sandeep Marwah President of International Journalism Centre of Marwah Studios.

UNESCO is focusing on three themes for World Press Freedom Day this year The need for “quality journalism” – reporting that is accurate and independent, remains a constant concern in a media landscape that is changing due to technological and commercial developments.

Gender imbalance continues in the media 20 years after the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Change. All too few women journalists are able to reach decision-making positions in the media.

The third theme is digital safety, a topic of growing concern because digital communications makes it difficult for journalists to protect themselves and their sources. International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry & International Human Rights Organization supported the event.
