South Africa is celebrating 20 years of freedom – a milestone for a country that in 1994 emerged from an apartheid past and had just started on the road towards building a democratic and inclusive society. Building democracy is a process. All sectors of society, to a greater or lesser extent, have played a part in transforming South Africa so that today we live in a better place. In the media environment it has been no different.

Media Landscape 2014 is a collection of chapters from media experts. Each of them was asked to consider the media landscape of 1994, to reflect on how far we have come, and to suggest a roadmap for the future. All were given the opportunity to present a range of views and opinions and to focus on the print, broadcast and digital media space where appropriate. Broadly speaking, all the authors start from the premise that the South African media of today is in a far better position than it was 20 years ago. Many refer back to the key principles and policies that were discussed, debated and adopted during the transition to democracy and that now form the important foundational building blocks like those rights enshrined in the Constitution.
