If you are a small media, NGO or unregistered initiative engaged in media production, and your mission is to improve media representation and diversity and contribute to the dispelling of disinformation, misinformation and malinformation in Kosovo, this call is for you.

In January 2023, they started implementing “Diversifying voices in journalism,” a project funded by the European Union that seeks to promote media pluralism in Kosovo, counter disinformation and build the capacity of media outlets, the youth and young journalists to produce journalistic content that adheres to the highest professional standards.

Through this “Diversifying voices in journalism” call in particular, they wish to provide small-scale funding and training to media outlets and related organizations to help them realize their own innovative, high-quality media projects. This is to make sure that funding and skills can reach a diverse audience of media outlets and media-producing organizations that find it hard to directly access EU funding, or that still need to grow their journalistic skills or organizational capacity.

The overall objective is to support quality, public interest journalism, and the understanding and trust of journalism professionals, the media and the public towards independent journalism and its irreplaceable democratic function.

Funding Information

Within this round, up to 6 applicants or consortia of applicants will be awarded a grant. Each winning project can receive up to 11,000.00 EUR in funding under this call. It is crucial to understand that the grants provided are project-based, not institutional or core grants. This means that if your project is selected, its success will be evaluated solely based on the targets and specifications outlined in your proposal.
