International Media Festival for Prevention

Since 1990 the International Media Festival for Prevention has been an integral part of the World Congress on Safety & Health at Work. It is jointly coordinated by the ISSA Electricity and Information Sections. The Media Festival offers an overview of films and multimedia productions about safety and health at work from all over the world and provides an opportunity for participants to present their products to a major group of influential international safety and health professionals. The Media Festival seeks to demonstrate that successful prevention work requires good communication, to which outstanding media can contribute significantly.

This year the IMFP received a record number of 289 submitted entries. The IMFP Jury chose 48 shortlisted entries and from these, they have chosen 18 entries that have been nominated for a prize. The six winners will be awarded during the Special Media Session on September 22, 2021. Also, a special viewing of the 18 nominated entries will take place at the IMFP Watch Party on September 21, 2021.

The 48 shortlisted productions will be available to be viewed on-demand on the IMFP Viewing Room throughout the entirety of the Congress. Also, attendees will have the chance to give their favorite shortlisted entry a “star.”
