The Prague Civil Society Centre has launched an open grant competition for regional and local media in Ukraine.
The objective of the competition is to support independent media in Ukraine during wartime so that they can provide society with accurate information from the ground for citizens in the frontline regions of Ukraine.
The centre will provide funding to established, editorially independent, unbiased and ethical online media from Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, Poltava, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, Odesa, Mykolayiv, Kherson, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions of Ukraine.
