Evens Prize for Media Education 2011
With the second Evens Prize for Media Education, to be awarded in 2011, the Evens Foundation* continues to highlight the importance of Media Education and to support sustainable projects in this field in Europe. The aim of this prize is to stimulate efforts to increase media literacy by raising critical awareness, which implies comprehension and cultural awareness, and by encouraging media creativity. Both of these contribute to the development of highly aware, active and responsible citizens.
The call for nominations is aimed at projects in the field of Media Education that focus on improving intercultural communication competences. Existing Media Education projects that can clearly demonstrate an attempt to use media production as a communication tool for young people to enter other cultural systems can apply through the application form on our website.
The Prize money of 20.000 € will be dedicated and divided by the external Jury Members and the Evens Foundation and will be used to create a new dimension to the winning project(s). Only projects that fulfill all criteria can submit. Deadline is 15th April 2011.
*The Evens Foundation is a public benefit foundation based in Antwerp, Belgium and with offices in Paris and Warsaw. It has the ambition to contribute to the construction of Europe by means of concrete projects, appropriate to reinforce the social cohesion between citizens of the European Union.
