The EU-funded OPEN Media Hub is inviting journalists and media organisations from Libya and Tunisia to apply for funding and support to produce stories on migration and refugees, population movements, resettlement and re-entry policies and their impact on the lives of people.

Besides financial support, media professionals will benefit from practical guidance to produce audio-visual stories, video news and features, online portfolio, as well as to disseminate contents at an appropriate quality level. This entire programme aims at delivering greater public awareness of the actions and impact of the European Neighbourhood Policy and strengthening domestic and local audience interest in EU issues; it also seeks to increase the amount of analytic, in-depth quality programming.

The amount of support will take the topic, media outlet, and country into account and be proportionate to the typical prices and rates in the country.

The average disbursement is:

  • A news piece up to 3 minutes: €250-€500;
  • Story up to 8 minutes: €500-€1,500;
  • Story up to 15 minutes: €1,000 – €3,000;
  • Story up to 30 minutes/ or more: €2,500 – €8,000
  • Productions intended for online media: €250-€1,500

The deadline for application is 5 May 2017, 21:00 CET.

The OPEN Media Hub project, funded under the OPEN Neighbourhood Programme, aims at creating a virtual media hub spanning the two regions, in order to contribute to the development of independent media and to a more accurate presentation of EU policies in the Neighbourhood regions, through the creation of a network of journalists. The OPEN Media Hub will provide skills to journalists and media managers through the fostering of professional networks, the provision of hands-on workshops, of journalist exchanges and support to audio-visual and online production.
