The Open Media Hub has launched 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 now open in 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.
