The call for applications is now closed.
The selected vloggers to be announced soon! Stay tuned for more.
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.
The selected vloggers will combine visits to EU-supported projects and meet interesting and inspiring personalities while showcasing the natural scenery, extraordinary landmarks and unique cultural heritage that the Western Balkans have to offer. Those chosen for this campaign will record their experiences using their own equipment and translate the journey into high-quality social media and web content, photos and videos. These will be disseminated through the WeBalkans channels.
They will be guided by their strong interest in present challenges - whether it be environment or climate change, connectivity, quality education, digitalisation, equality and inclusion, employment, culture and youth or regional cooperation, and motivated to highlight what is being done about them in their region.
And they will not travel alone - in early 2023 the selected winners will be paired with another young creator from the EU to travel together and collaborate on all content production. Six EU-Western Balkans travel pairs will have the chance to explore the best of the Western Balkans and tell the world about it in their own words!
Have you applied? If the answer is yes, stay tuned, you may be among the winners who will take part in the incredible journey around the Western Balkans Six!
The selection process will consist of five phases. Please find more detailed information about each phase in the Terms and Conditions.
