Call for Applications: Media Enabling Democracy, Inclusion and Accountability in Moldova

Deadline: 22 August 2017

Internews, through MEDIA-M project, is seeking applications for its “Media Enabling Democracy, Inclusion and Accountability in Moldova” to help media outlets from Republic of Moldova to improve the quality of their content, diversify news formats, strengthen their financial viability, and better engage their audiences, especially digitally.

Six media outlets will be selected for an initial one-year period assistance program, including a differentiated grant opportunity, with the possibility of multi-annual extension based on demonstrated progress and results, as evaluated through annual milestone assessments conducted by Internews staff and consultants as well as ongoing monitoring. Ongoing coaching and mentoring will be provided by long-term editorial and management consultants working regularly with management and staff in-house at each selected outlet to support progress toward individualized targets and goals. The grant amount will be negotiated individually and justified based on the results of a needs assessment. The media outlets selected to receive assistance will be expected to actively participate in MEDIA-M trainings, provide time and space for the editorial and management consultants to work, and design and post/broadcast public service content, including on media literacy issues.

Grants may support production and distribution of multiplatform news content (including technical upgrades to make that possible), introduction of innovative story formats, and coverage of political, economic, and social issues that promote accountability and civic participation.

Priority will be given to outlets based outside the capital and Chisinau-based outlets having/ seeking to establish closer ties with regional audiences, particularly minority-language speakers. At least one of the key partner outlets will focus primarily on production of investigative journalism. At least half of the assisted media outlets will have minority language production.
