INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF ENTRIES TO IDEJAX & YOUNG LIONS IN CROATIA
Competitions IdejaX and Young Lions Croatia have seen an increase in the number of entries compared to the previous year with 12% (83 entries) and 58% (30 teams) respectively. The best projects from both categories will be announced at the Days of Communication in Rovinj on Saturday, 14 April 2018.
IdejaX is a national competition in creativity that attracts large and small agencies alike for years now. This year, the highest number of entries, 14 projects, were submitted in the category of the best integrated campaign, while 12 entries were submitted in the categories of telecommunications and financial and insurance services each. The main focus of IdejaX this year is on transparency and the process of jurying. Accordingly, after the awards are declared, the jury assessments will be published on the website of the Days of Communication. The IdejaX jury is made up of highly qualified creatives coming from the best domestic agencies, according to the IdejaX placement in the preceding year, and the jury president this year is Jelena Fiškuš from Studio Sonda.
Young Lions Croatia is a competition for young professionals up to 30 years of age, and its added value lies in its humanitarian character. A brief that is given to these teams calls for creation of a communications platform for an organization of civil society, and this year it is an international humanitarian organization. The competition will last 24 hours, it will be held in Zagreb at the Technological Park, and the winning team will be declared in Rovinj. 30 competition teams will compete in five different categories, with the highest number of registrations being recorded in the Digital category.

DESIGN DISTRICT ZAGREB 2018 FOCUSES ON THE IMPORTANCE OF LOCAL PATHWAYS
“Local Pathways” is the central topic and the programmatic cornerstone of the third edition of Design District Zagreb (DDZ), a vibrant interdisciplinary, multimedia, open-air festival to be held in the period between 14 and 17 June at the so-called ‘Martićeva zone’, already recognized as the most creative district in Zagreb. During the four festival days, a number of both exterior and interior exhibitions will be organised along with installations and interventions in public space, professionally guided tours of architectural landmarks in the district, workshops, talks and roundtables, book fair and literary and musical evenings.
“Instead of merely celebrating creativity as an isolated category inherent only to artists, the program of Design District Zagreb is intended to inspire creativity among people who live in the district as well as numerous visitors of all ages. In the context of what is needed, beautiful and useful, instead of what is exclusive, the Festival aims to involve on equal footing all relevant stakeholders in thinking about the development of public space. The creative spirit inspired by the project works towards gradual and rational, yet undeniable changes that can transform Zagreb on a long-term basis and make it the front-runner of a sustainable approach to culture,” said Ira Payer, creative director of the Festival.
The Festival is organized by Superstudio collective and Design Centre Zagreb association and supported by the City of Zagreb Tourist Board, City of Zagreb Office for Culture and the Croatian Ministry of Culture.
FOUR NEW FELLOWS OF L’OREAL AND UNESCO’S “FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE” PROGRAM ANNOUNCED
The 12th award of the L’Oreal-UNESCO National Scholarship Program “For Women in Science” was held at the National House of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts. Fellowships were awarded to four young and promising scholars: Andrea Bistrović (Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology University of Zagreb), Antonela Blažeković (Faculty of Medicine, University of Zagreb), Maria Brbić (Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb), and Martina Požar (Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics in Split and the University of Sorbonne, Faculté des Sciences in Paris, former University Pierre et Marie Curie). The Election Commission, made up of leading Croatian scientists, selected the most successful Croatian women in science and rewarded them for their contributions to the creation of a knowledge society with a one-time scholarship of 5,000 euros.
National scholarship program For Women in Science, organized by L’Oreal Adria and the Croatian Commission for UNESCO at the Ministry of Culture, has been present in Croatia for twelve years and has so far awarded 46 outstanding Croatian young scientists in the final phase of their doctoral dissertation in the field of natural sciences, including interdisciplinary areas. Scholarship Program for Women in Science along with financial support, provides recognition to young hopes of Croatian science for past and future scientific work, but also a kind of incentive for scientists to persevere in their scientific work.
FACEBOOK TO GIVE USERS AN OPTION THAT ONLY MARK ZUCKERBERG HAD BEFORE
Mark Zuckerberg had a secret power to retroactively delete his Messenger messages after they had been sent. Now Facebook says everyone will get that privacy tool.
The Facebook CEO was able to send messages through his company’s popular app and later delete traces of the conversation, according to a TechCrunch report. On Friday, after the discrete deletes came to light, Facebook promised to introduce that executive feature to everyone in the coming months.
“We will now be making a broader delete message feature available,” a Facebook spokeswoman said in an e-mail statement. “This may take some time. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner—and we’re sorry that we did not.”
Facebook Messenger does have a “secret” mode, where people can set up chats that are timed to expire, a feature it released in 2016. The executives, however, could unsend any of their chats from any time.
