Due Date: 19.8 2018. Online and broadcast media outlets in the EU Neighbourhood countries region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine) are invited to apply for funding to support investigative journalism features.
Up to €8,000 per project will be awarded for projects on issues of regional importance, and/or related to individual countries’ relations with the European Union. News outlets, journalism organizations, audiovisual production companies, and individual journalists affiliated with a media outlet may apply.
The aim is to increase the amount of analytic, in-depth quality programming available for the audience in each respective country, including regional and international distribution via the project’s Content Exchange Platform.
In addition to production support, OPEN Media Hub will encourage selected projects to participate in a pitching session during autumn 2018 in Berlin with a panel of European media. This session may provide opportunities for potential production and possible additional funding for stories.
