CORRECTIV has established the Campfire festival – a festival about journalism and the society we live in. The festival is not meant to be another conference where journalists meet journalists but meant to celebrate journalism and make it accessible for everyone.
The festival, held in Düsseldorf in partnership with the newspaper Rheinische Post, will be held for the third time this year from August 31 to September 1. We expect more than 10,000 visitors.
We would like to cordially invite you to attend the festival.
Over the past year, CORRECTIV and its media partners have published a number of international investigations such as the Cum-Ex Files, #BlackSitesTurkey and Grand Theft Europe. CORRECTIV plans to further develop its role as the coordinator of such cross-border investigations.
We’re holding a workshop at the Campfire festival on Sunday, September 1, from 15 - 18 o'clock, to present our plans to our partners and to jointly develop ideas and projects. It is crucial for the development of our international plans to hear your views and consider your ideas. Let’s develop the next phase of cross-border, investigative journalism together.
The 2019 Campfire will also for the first time include an international track. We would like to invite you to join the track and present the work that you’ve done. We will give you the floor to present your journalism to the audience at Düsseldorf on Saturday, August 31 from 15 - 18 o'clock.
CORRECTIV will cover the costs of your travel and your stay in Düsseldorf. We will reserve a hotel for you. Please book the flight yourself and send us the reciept afterwards!
We’re looking forward to seeing you there and discussing the future of journalism!
