With the slogan: "The stories continue", this time, and virtually, the eighth edition of the Gabo Festival will be held by the Gabo Foundation, an institution created by the Colombian journalist and Nobel Prize winner Gabriel García Márquez.

Its mission, they point out, "is to promote better journalism and the stimulation of creativity, with emphasis on the workshop method and the memory of our founder. We do this through initiatives such as the Journalism Workshop, the Gabo Festival," among others.

According to the foundation, this is "the great celebration of Ibero-American journalism", which, year after year, is held in Medellin, Colombia. There, finalists and winners of the Gabo Award are honored. "The Gabo Festival is possible thanks to a public-private alliance formed by the Gabo Foundation together with the Mayor's Office of Medellin and the Bancolombia and Sura groups with their subsidiaries in Latin America," the foundation said.
