The Contest “Truth or Fiction?” Extended until December 31
The media literacy contest “Truth of Fiction?” will continue until the end of the year. Bachelor’s degree students will be allowed to to submit their works until December 31. This decision was taken by the Communications Commission due to high interest of students.
The contest, which aims to develop media literacy, logical and critical thinking, analysis, and fact-checking skills, was announced on November 1, and is open to all bachelor’s degree students.
As part of the competition, students are already being trained in identifying fake news in the media. Participants are receiving detailed information on how to discover fake news, verify and establish real facts.
Winners of the competition will be selected by a competent jury panel. Winners will receive modern prizes from the Communications Commission, including an iPhone 13 Pro for the first place, an HP Pavilion for the second place and an iPad 10.2 (9 Gen) for the third-place.
In addition to the prizes, the winners of the competition and other successful participants will be supported by the Communications Commission in career development. The Commission will provide students with certified trainings. After completing the course, they will be granted the status of a trainer and will have the opportunity to be actively involved in the Commission's media literacy projects. Trained students will share their knowledge and experience with other students and pupils both in schools and at universities.
Rules and other details of the competition can be accessed through the media literacy page of the Communications Commission – https://www.facebook.com/MediaLiteracy.comcom/ and the official website of the Commission – www.comcom.ge
This is the sixth edition of the media literacy contest “Truth or Fiction?”. Four of the past contests were held for school pupils, and one was organized for university students.
