Cusco WebFest is the digital content festival that gives voice to national and international creators.

We believe in new media as a democratic tool to empower the communities from our territories, focusing with special attention on the Andean community but also open to the rest of the world within a vision of connection between peoples. (Subminting to our festival you are giving a 5% of your fee to charity).

Three principal categories: national; to empower digital content with a social impact, latinamerican; to connect with South American creatives, international; to open Andean culture to the rest of the world.
