Hackathon: Journalism for Peace
Under the title "Hackathon: Journalism for Peace", EFE, in collaboration with the Gabo Foundation and Minsait (an Indra company in Spain) -with the support of the Foundation for Press Freedom-, organized a collaborative event in which young developers and journalists created an app to increase the safety of correspondents working in conflict areas in Colombia.
The event took place on the 22nd and 23rd of October during the prestigious Gabo Journalism Festival in the Colombian capital and involved four teams of five to three members. The winning result was the mobile app "Diámetro", which will be available to Colombian journalists in 2023.
Mental Taboo: EFE starts at its highest in the podcast market
In 2022, EFE started at the highest point in the podcast market with "Tabú mental" ("Mental Taboo"), an exclusive production for Amazon Music. This podcast gives a larger view of the most common mental illnesses through the voice of musicians, actors, influencers, writers and well-known athletes who have suffered them and have asked for help. "Tabú mental" was one of the most listened to podcasts in Spain and was in the Top 3 of Amazon Music.
EFE's informative podcasts were awarded in September 2022 by the European Alliance of News Agencies (EANA), for their "quality" and "innovation".
