The OPEN Media Hub is launching a Call for Expression of Interest for Production Support, a scheme to enable TV and online video journalists in the European Neighbourhood to create content related to the European Union and their respective countries’ relations with the European Union. The scheme is open for Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Jordan, Libya, Lebanon, Moldova, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, and Ukraine.

Besides financial support, media professionals will benefit from practical guidance to produce, disseminate content 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 values.

Topic: Identity and Gender

Individuals do not define their own identity and gender. The roles of men and women are constantly defined and redefined by societies and cultures, identities as well. Gender and Identity are also subject to contest by groups of individuals and social movements on issues pertaining to law and rights’ status. These issues are common to all societies, and cross borders. Tell us the story of the identity and gender that you have chosen. Through individuals’ personal experiences, illustrate your characters’ involvement in their environment, their actions, their knowledge, their behavioural choices and engagements, all elements constituting their identity and gender.
