Free Press Unlimited invites independent Syrian media outlets and civil-society organisations (CSOs) to form partnerships, or small consortia, to together apply for the 2023 round of the Small Grant Fund for Syrian CSO-Media Co-Production.

The project aims to build productive partnerships between Syrian CSOs and media in order to tell original, impactful stories that are relevant to Syrian audiences across geographic and political lines. Through collaborative reporting and advocacy, the Co-Production Fund highlights on-the-ground realities while promoting dialogue and inclusivity.

In the light of these new crises and geopolitical developments in Syria, the 2023 edition of the Co-Production Fund invites projects that address long-standing systematic issues on themes including:

  • Accountability & transparency
  • Community-building
  • Diversity & minorities
  • Gender, race and social equality
  • Livelihoods & labour
  • Displacement
  • Dialogue across geographic and political lines
  • The politics of humanitarian aid
  • Resilience & rehabilitation
  • Sustainability & resources

For the Small Grant Fund for Syrian CSO-Media Co-Production, FPU seeks collaborations between media outlets and CSOs from diverse social and geographic backgrounds to document stories with professional, ethical, and solutions-based journalism.
