Immersive Journalism: A Manifesto
On November 23, 2019, during the IV Hyper VR Festival, the event created by Fabio Hofnik in Brazil, journalists and researchers Carlos Turdera, Eduardo Acquarone, Gibby Zobel and Damián Kirzner, spoke in the Immersive Journalism panel.

Issues such as the profession's credibility crisis, funding model and distribution platforms were analysed along with themes of narrative, audience and ethics that emerge from the evolution of devices to create and view stories in 360 and virtual reality.

Coming together through mutual interest in what was provisionally called Immersive Journalism, the speakers decided to record their thoughts in a document that could contribute not only to the debate on the process, but also to encourage the experimentation of techniques of production and exhibition of this content.

As a result of this initiative, this document is being shared among journalists, media entrepreneurs, students and any content producer interested in developing stories that can be experienced in these environments in the emerging global media ecosystem.
