Global Media Consortium
"Where your lens is your armor and words your battle-cry"
Letter from the Head
It is my absolute pleasure to bring to you the Global Media Consortium at IYC
2017. I welcome you into a world tainted with hypocrisy and lies, and urge you to
bring in your own shades of diplomacy to it. After all, when crisis strikes and
people are left scavenging for the truth, it is only the press that they turn to.
This year at the Global Media Consortium we have carefully chosen each
photographer to represent a particular country and each journalist to embody the
spirit of a famous news figure. Therefore, this year it is not just about your words
and ideas but about presenting your nation and its media to the world. Your role at
this conference is hence extremely crucial and to allow you to understand the
gravity of this very situation, we have compiled a Study Guide that will hopefully
prepare you well for what is in store. We have tried to give you an overview of
what to expect during the two days of continuous chaos along with providing you a
basis on which to build your research.
So delegates, sharpen your wits, get ready to showcase the supremacy of the press
and possess the ability to control exactly what the world perceives as the truth. The
Global Media Consortium is where the control lies in your creativity and the fate
of nations solely in your words.
With an exemplary team ensuring that the definition of catastrophe is revised, the
Global Media Consortium would be nothing short of a battle where no cover up
stays hidden for long. Presenting to you, your team at the Global Media
Meet the Team

Most short people might go unnoticed, but even in a room full of people Sanchita Tibrewal is guaranteed to catch your attention with her witty remarks.
