DW Akademie has launched a call for applications for grants for Armenian regional media organisations with a focus on relevant topics in remote areas and projects that include and support female journalists.
This call for proposals will provide financial support to up to five regional media organisations (e.g. online, TV, radio/podcast, print) in Armenia to produce additional programming and content on key topics of regional interest.
Special attention is given to projects aimed at capacity building and skills development. Priority will be given to online media, media focusing on topical themes in remote areas, and projects that include and support women journalists.
A maximum of €4,000 will be awarded to each successful applicant. The grant can cover the costs of staff, mainly journalists, equipment (small items only, such as cameras, microphones and other similar small movable items), and other publication costs such as design, layout, and print.
The deadline for applications is 5 May.
The grant is launched by the ‘European Media Facility in Armenia – Building Sustainable and Professional Media’ project, funded by the European Union and implemented by a consortium led by DW Akademie and consisting of BBC Media Action, the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation Armenia (OSIAFA), Hetq and Factor. The project contributes to a vibrant Armenian media sector by working with media managers, independent journalists, national and regional media outlets as well as journalism students.
