Amman, 17 September 2017 – Today the Support to Media in Jordan project released a Call for the expression of interest by media outlets in Jordan.
This call for expression of interest will allow UNESCO to select and assist media outlets that offer a strong commitment to improve their capacities and skills in:
A. Implementing innovative solutions within the media outlet, including and not limited to:
• Adapt the media to the technical changes brought about by the Internet and digitalization;
• Support convergence and integration of traditional news media and new communications,
• Develop innovative application;
• Foster data journalism, cross media story telling;
• Managerial innovation.
B. Ameliorating the image of women through media production, by developing a project that will be:
1)Gender-responsive (i.e. it sees how the differentials are significant, in how the project is designed); or
2)Gender-transformative (i.e. it is a gender-specific project in that it aims to change gender inequalities).
The proposals can be submitted in Arabic and whenever possible in English. The proposal should be submitted by email no later than close of business (18:00) on 17 October 2017.
