Internews invites applications for the Expanding Production of Independent Content in Hungary.

The EPIC project aims to assist in the production and dissemination of high-quality, credible, engaging, and innovative fact-based multimedia journalism content that addresses issues of importance for communities across Hungary.

The Expanding Production of Independent Content grant programme is looking to support projects that are innovative in their story approaches and angles, as well as their use of (audio)visual storytelling tools to reach a wide range of audience groups and make content accessible to people with various information needs. Projects should address issues of public interest, the human experiences that reflect them, and have the potential to counter disinformation.

Multimedia content can include photography, videography, animation, captioned video, infographics (charts, maps, data visualizations), graphics, drawings, audio segments, interactivity or even gamification. Applicants who have less experience with multimedia are also welcome to apply and will be supported by expert consultancy and mentoring to develop capabilities.

Internews will also provide expert consultancy and/or training to help establish or strengthen the capabilities of applicants to produce and promote innovative content. EPIC will also support content producers in regional cross-border networking and content sharing through a story database, online and in-person events, and further rounds of grants for local and cross-border stories.
