The European Commission (EC) has announced a call for proposals to enhance the quantity, quality and impact of independent audiovisual reporting on EU affairs by pan-European media outlets in as many languages and EU member states as possible.

Applicants are expected to produce and disseminate audiovisual reporting content using both traditional and new media formats and distribution channels. They must adhere to European editorial standards, implement a shared pan-European branding and outreach strategy, and encourage exchanges of opinions and debates on key topics affecting European citizens.

The call for proposals is split into 2 different topics:

  • Topic 1: Production and broadcasting of programmes and reports on EU affairs, including activities and policies of the EU institutions
  • Topic  2: News services in languages with limited coverage of EU affairs and/or where the diversity of EU news content can improve

Both topics address news media organisations specialising on EU affairs and delivering audiovisual content. Applicants can apply to either one or the two topics, although in the latter case they must fill in separate proposals.

Funding Information

The available call budget is EUR 11,000,000.

This budget is split as follows:

  • EUR 8,000,000 is proposed for Topic 1.
  • EUR 3,000,000 is proposed for Topic 2.
