The OPEN Media Hub is launching a Call for Expression of Interest for Production Support to enable TV and online video journalists in the European Neighbourhood to create contents (audio-visual stories, news, features, online portfolio, webdocs…) related to the European Union and their respective countries’ relations with the European Union. The OPEN Media Hub will provide journalists with the financial means and practical guidance to produce and disseminate such coverage at an appropriate quality level. This entire action 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.

This call is open for journalists from

Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia

The Open Media Hub is pleased to launch this call to enable the production of long formats, up to 26 minutes broadcast story and or long reads for web documentaries.

We would welcome story proposals on issues pertaining to the economic, cultural and social development and evolutions in your country. We are looking for strong characters in situation illustrating change as it happens, whether about environment, society, gender or else…

A look at history, geography, relations with neighbouring countries can help your proposed story to be put into perspective and be of interest to you and further afield.

Deadline for submission: 31 January 2018

The OPEN Media Hub project, funded under the OPEN Neighbourhood Programme, aims at creating a virtual media hub spanning the EU’s two neighbourhood regions – south and east – in order to contribute to the development of independent media and to a more accurate presentation of EU policies, through the creation of a network of journalists. It provides 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.
