The 7th edition of the competition #FakeHunter Challenge - Fake News Alert on 21-22 April 2023

The competition #FakeHunter Challenge is intended for everyone who wants to promote the idea of access to reliable and trustworthy information.

Every day we are exposed to false and manipulated content in the subject matter of military, political and economic operations and their consequences. This is particularly important now, when we are witnessing Russia’s aggression on Ukraine. The scale of fake news aimed at inciting social unrest and divisions, stirring up anxiety and panic throughout the world, and destroying trust within societies and between allies is spreading like a virus.

This is why we want to fight disinformation! Join the competition! Together we can have a greater impact on what other people read.

The main theme of the 7th edition of the competition is “Fake News Alert”, which emphasises the need for  increased focus and alertness in response to the fake news flood and for actively combatting disinformation in the political, military, diplomatic and power domain.

Within the two days registered individuals acting on their own or in teams can report fake news published online on the following topics, among others: the war in Ukraine, Russia's military, propaganda and political operations, Poland's aid to Ukrainian refugees and relations between our nations, and the economic consequences of the situation in the East. The thematic scope of the competition also includes content related to falsifying the image of the Polish state and distorting the history of Poland.

Registration already behind you? That's great! Now it's time to start competing!
