Ghana Hosts 3rd Africa Media Convention from May 15

The Convention, an initiative of The African Editors’ Forum (TAEF) was first held in Arusha, Tanzania, in 2022

Ghana this week from May 15 to 17 will be hosting the 3rd Africa Media Convention – a conference that will bring together media leaders to discuss emerging technologies and the creation of new revenue opportunities through partnerships.

Ghana won the bid last year to host the third edition during the event in Lusaka, Zambia. The Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) spearheaded that feat, making it the first journalists association in West Africa to host the conference.

“The annual African Media is a collaborative effort supported by the African media stakeholders, to reflect on the fundamental role of journalism on the continent, celebrate the fundamental principles of press freedom and deliberate on measures to safeguard media freedoms and promote access to information, the safety of journalists and media viability in AU Member States,” organisers said.
