Digital Media Africa

Welcome to the 6th edition of WAN-IFRA's flagship Africa event!

“Digital Media Africa provides rich and relevant content very year. With the challenges of falling print runs and working amidst Covid-19, it was encouraging & educative to get first hand insight from the various sessions. DMA continues to expand professional knowledge authentically.” (Mwazi Sakala, Associate Editor, Daily Nation, Zambia)

“DMA conference is like a compass that helps traditional media navigate the terrain for survival in a space dominated by agile small players whose turnaround on new digital ideas is as fast as light. Success stories and lessons learnt elsewhere are quite helpful for some organizations to also take time to innovate and contribute to the survival of journalism.” (Happiness Chikwanha, Digital Editor, Zimbabwe Newspapers (1980) Limited, Zimbabwe)

“Digital platforms are not an option in today’s world but a must. We need to move with time to capture our target audience as much as possible. The Digital Media Africa presents the much needed knowledge on innovations to tap from.” (Mercy M.C Banda, Assignment Editor – Livingstone, ZNBC, Zambia)

“The Digital Media Africa 2021 conference was absolutely amazing: it brought together great minds from across the continent and beyond who shared their experience, insights and knowledge on the issues affecting the media industry and what they see as the future for newsrooms going forward. It was such an insightful experience as I was able to engage with participants and also share my experience as a female journalist working in the industry. I look forward to the next one!” (Rachel Ombaka, Online Journalist, The Africa Report, Kenya)

“There are several development and learning events on the media calendar but DMA strives to be truly pan-African in outlook and research and intelligence driven in focus. This offers media leaders of firms big and small opportunities to learn relevant insights for growth from each other rather than parachuted Western media consultants.” (Jude Mathurine, Coordinator: Journalism, Nelson Mandela University, South Africa)

“The conference offers practical and insightful information for any newsroom transitioning into the digital space. There are lots of learnings from entities especially in Africa that have gone before, open sharing of mistakes made that help others not fall in the same pitfalls. Such information shows that going digital and generating revenue from it is doable in Africa.”
(Joy E. Abo, Senior Producer Multimedia, New Vision Printing and Publishing Company Limited, Uganda)
