The EU-funded Majalat project has launched a mobile journalism competition to highlight the efforts made by the civil society organisations on the ground.
The participants are requested to create a video in the form of a report or a short documentary film covering one the following topics: good governance and rule of law; economic development and social dialogue, migration, security and the fight against violence; climate and social justice; youth.
The registration deadline is 21 January.
The competition is open to journalists, activists, amateur content creators or journalism fans who come from one of the Southern Mediterranean countries.
3,500 euros will be awarded to the winner.
“Majalat” is a regional initiative supported and financed by the European Commission. This unique initiative led by civil society organisations from the North and South of the Mediterranean aims to build a continuous exchange between the EU and Civil Society from ten countries from the South of the Mediterranean in continuity with previous EU structured dialogues. Each year, through an annual cycle of activities, civil society organisations will gather to discuss and exchange on 5 themes that are central for the relations between the EU and countries in the region (Governance and Rule of Law, security and countering violence, migration, economic and social dialogue, social and climate justice). The results of these discussions will be brought from the field into structured (policy) dialogues with the European Union.
