WeBalkans are proud to launch a call for applications addressed to young vloggers from the Western Balkans who want to become part of the “Made of Us” road-trip through the Western Balkans. This adventure is due to take place in spring 2023. We invite all talented vloggers from the Western Balkans, aged 21 to 30, to apply through the dedicated portal WeBalkans.eu.
The selected vloggers will visit EU-supported projects and meet interesting and inspiring personalities, while also showcasing the natural scenery, extraordinary landmarks and unique cultural heritage that the Western Balkans have to offer. The selected travellers will record their experiences using their own equipment and translate the journey into high-quality social media and web content, photos and videos, which will be disseminated through their own and the WeBalkans channels.
The journey will be even more exiting as the six winners from the Western Balkans will not travel alone. In early 2023, they will be joined by six young creators from the EU to travel together and collaborate on all the content production. These six EU-Western Balkans travel pairs will have the chance to explore the best of the Western Balkans, telling the rest of the world about it in their own words in April-May 2023!
We invite all those interested to visit our website webalkans.eu for more information about the selection process, including the terms and conditions of participation. The application phase starts on 7 December and will be open until 7 January 2023. “Made of Us” is the third regional awareness campaign rolled out by WeBalkans, a project funded by the European Union.
The EU Regional Communication Programme for the Western Balkans was launched in January 2020 and will run for four years. The objective is to inform diverse target audiences about EU values, policies and programmes. The programme comprises three integrated components:
– three region-wide communication campaigns
– the online portal WeBalkans.eu
– Young European Ambassadors network
Pomilio Blumm, a communication agency that specialises in relationships between governments, public administrations and citizens, is implementing the project.
