positioned ourselves as the most ambitious productive event at the south of
the Continent. In 2012 and 2013 we had the presence of media and experts
from 21 countries and 4 continents, among them The New York Times, the BBC
, Chicago Tribune , The Guardian, Spiegel Online, etc. and products like
Zeega , DocumentCloud and Sourcefabric. The 2013 edition was the largest
Hacks/Hackers meeting in the world !

According to a survey by the production team, 70 % said that the experience
of participating exceeded their expectations , 85 % felt the Media Party as
an event with a social impact and 99 % of attendees last year said he would
like to participate in 2014. This year, we aim to consolidate our position
as the innovation event in the world's largest Spanish-language media and
for this we will build a community meeting space to learn and work with the
pioneers of innovation applied to the generation of audiences, production
news, data journalism and new forms of storytelling in the digital world.

The promise is to accelerate change through creative networking activities
, improving the provision of workshops on diversity and levels, and
encourage interdisciplinary tool production and journalistic initiatives
through mentoring and incentives.

Knight Foundation, Knight- Mozilla News Open, Mozilla Foundation,
International Center for Journalism, World Bank Institute, etc, and a
