An incredible adventure is about to
begin in spring 2023

The call for applications is now closed.
The selected vloggers to be announced soon! Stay tuned for more.

What is the future made of?

What is the future
made of?

In times of political uncertainty, many have begun to question the present situation. What opportunities are out there for us? What are the stories that we want to tell ourselves and others? And what is the future made of?

We believe that people shape the present and future of the Western Balkans with their ideas, dreams and everyday effort. We believe in the power of people as “creators of possibilities”. This is why in 2022, during the European Year of Youth, WeBalkans together with the European Commission are proud to launch their first call for applications addressing young talented creators from the Western Balkans. They will look for the answers to such questions as part of an exciting new campaign starting in spring 2023.

The selected vloggers

will be announced soon!

The chosen vloggers will participate in a one-week travel experience (itineraries will be officially set mid-February 2023) in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, North Macedonia or Serbia between April-May 2023.

* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244/1999 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.

After the closing of the application process, all of the submitted applications will be screened for basic eligibility:
  • Application form duly completed
  • Video and other supporting materials submitted according to instructions
  • Formal criteria for application duly met (as set out in the Terms and Conditions)
Among the applicants who passed the basic eligibility check, 24 applicants will be selected for a shortlist by an internal qualified jury based on the criteria listed in Article 3 and 4 of the Terms and Conditions. Those shortlisted will be contacted at the beginning February 2023. The best candidates will then be chosen based on the quality of their application, charisma and communication skills by a technical jury in mid-February 2023 (stay tuned not to miss the official dates).
The winners will be announced on webalkans.eu and official social media channels. They will get to meet their potential EU travel partners (find out more about how the EU vloggers will be selected in Article 5 of the Terms and Conditions) at a briefing workshop (location tbc), plan their travel itineraries and get all set for the trip together.
Now the journey can start! Each pair of vloggers will travel in one of the Western Balkan Six and tell a story together of what the region and its future are made of!
