CIVIS Media Prize 2015 - The European competition opens
Search for Europe's best radio and TV programmes as well as web pages and web videos on the theme of integration and cultural diversity
CIVIS again recognizes programme contributions on radio, film and television as well as on the Internet which promote the peaceful coexistence of people of the most varied geographic and cultural origins. In addition to flight and asylum, the focus is on the latest developments of an integrated, culturally diverse society - without denying the existence of conflicts. It is a question of equality, acceptance and access to social opportunities, regardless of national, ethnic or religious origins.
The European competition is open to entries which take the form of reports, documentaries, commentaries, special features, films and cartoons. All creative forms are permitted (www.civismedia.eu/conditionsofparticipation).
Closing-date for entries is January 20, 2015. The CIVIS Media Prizes are endowed.
The CIVIS Media Prize 2015 is open to all TV and radio broadcasters as well as all production companies and web providers in the EU and Switzerland. As well as for all film and television colleges, academies and colleges of journalism, communication and media. Web videos can be sent by all interested persons residing in the EU and Switzerland.
The CIVIS Media Prize 2015 will be awarded as Radio and TV Prize. With the "Young CIVIS Media Prize" there will be a European sponsorship prize. The "CIVIS Online Media Prize" will offer an additional award for web offers and web videos on the theme of integration and cultural diversity.
