Bloggers with Bloggers conference

The Next Century Foundation will be hosting a "bloggers" conference entitled "Bloggers with Bloggers" on Saturday 9th May.

The one day conference, sponsered by the U.S. media outreach of the state department, will be recognising three particular types of blogger on middle-eastern current affairs: Journalistic bloggers (bloggers from various news organisations), bloggers in crises (bloggers in countries such as Iran), and bloggers in civil society (bloggers from the West writing about the Middle East).

A special additional category of "Middle East bloggers" will be presented at the 2009 International Media Council Awards to be held on the 11th May. A short-listing meeting for the media awards will be held on the 18th March at 6:30 at the Next Century Foundation.
