European Media Freedom Conference 2015,
8th/9th October 2015, Leipzig (Germany)

Dear Sir or Madam,
Press and media freedom is of vital importance in every democratically
organized society. Although freedom of expression is guaranteed in every
European constitution, we see breaches of this fundamental human right in
every European country – almost every day!
Europe’s top journalists, researchers, media lawyers and politicians will
come to participate in the European Media Freedom Conference organised by
the newly-founded European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) to
Leipzig to send a clear signal for press and media freedom at this
historical place and date.
We cordially invite you to participate at our conference to take place at
8th and 9th October 2015.
Venue: Media Campus Villa Ida, Poetenweg 28, 04155 Leipzig.

In more than a dozen panels and workshops, the participants from several
European countries will debate topics such as surveillance, whistleblowing
and EU media law. They include:
·      Melody Patry, Senior Advocacy Officer, Index on Censorship, London

·      Ljiljana Smajlović, president Serbian Journalists' Association (UNS),
Editor in Chief Politika, Belgrade

·      Ides Debruyne
00;&sidebar=yes&bg=no> , Managing Director Journalismfund.eu, Brussels

·      Esad Hećimović, investigative journalist, Sarajevo

·      Hans-Ulrich Jörges, Editor in Chief for Special Affairs Gruner +
Jahr, Berlin

·      Elmar Brok, Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign
Affairs, Brussels

·      Henrik Kaufholz, Scoop and Politiken, Chairman ECPMF, Copenhagen

·      Alberto Spampinato, founder Ossigeno per l'informazione, Rome

·      Dirk Voorhoof, Professor for International Media Law, Ghent

‘Meet the Donors’ is another important aspect of the conference: media
freedom initiatives have the chance to network with potential donors for
their projects.  
On the evening of the 8th October Nedim Şener (Turkish journalist and
author) and Jafar Panahi (Iranian film-maker) will be awarded with the
30.000 Euro “Prize for the Freedom and Future of the Media”. All conference
participants are cordially invited to this special event by the Media
Foundation of Sparkasse Leipzig.
