IPIWoCo 2021 has ended
Thank you for attending the IPI World Congress 2021 in Vienna, organized by the International Press Institute (IPI). IPI is a Vienna-based global network of editors, media executives and leading journalists. We are dedicated to furthering and safeguarding press freedom, protecting freedom of opinion and expression, promoting the free flow of news and information, and improving the practices of journalism.


Daniela Pinheiro is the first woman appointed editor-in-chief of a weekly magazine in Brazil. A JSK Knight (JSK) Fellow in Journalism at Stanford University alumni and also a former fellow at Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University, she was the editor-in-chief of the weekly news and analysis magazine Época from February 2018 until September 2019. She is currently at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa completing her master's degree in Communication Sciences.
During Pinheiro's tenure, Época was awarded twice in the Best Media of the Year category by Aberje, and Prêmio Colunistas awarded it Best Magazine in the Country. In September 2019, Pinheiro resigned – along with five editors and five columnists— after attacks from President Jair Bolsonaro and his family.
She began her career at Folha de São Paulo, the country’s largest newspaper, followed by a long period as a reporter and editor at Veja, Brazil’s largest weekly magazine. Between 2006 and 2017, she was editor and then digital editor at Piauí, a prestigious long-form monthly magazine, where she also ran and curated the Piauí International Journalism Festival.
Fluent in five languages, Pinheiro has traveled extensively to cover topics ranging from fashion and soccer to violence and corruption and everything in between. She is the four-time winner of Brazil’s Women in Press prize and the three-time winner of Brazilian journalism’s most distinguished award, the Comunique-se Prize.
