EU-funded Majalat is organizing a video contest in connection with the project’s priority themes (Good governance and state of law, economic development and social dialogue, migration, climate and social justice, security and the fight against violence). The aim is to highlight the commitment and the concrete action on the ground of the civil society actors of the southern neighbourhood. The deadlines to register and submit videos are respectively 30 September and 15 November.

The competition is open to young amateur filmmakers or film students under 30 from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, and Tunisia.

A professional jury of well-known filmmakers from the region will choose the three winning videos. The first three laureates will receive prizes of 5,000 euros, 3,000 euros, and 2,000 euros and will be able to present their videos in the award ceremony during Majalat Civil Forum which will take place in Brussels on 2-3 December.

“Majalat” is a regional initiative supported and financed by the European Commission. This unique initiative led by civil society organisations from the North and South of the Mediterranean aims to build a continuous exchange between the EU and Civil Society from ten countries from the South of the Mediterranean in continuity with previous EU structured dialogues. Each year, through an annual cycle of activities, civil society organisations will gather to discuss and exchange on 5 themes that are central for the relations between the EU and countries in the region (Governance and Rule of Law, security and countering violence, migration, economic and social dialogue, social and climate justice). The results of these discussions will be brought from the field into structured (policy) dialogues with the European Union.
