News / WeBalkans Announces Winners of ‘Made of Us’ Vlogger Competition
WeBalkans is pleased to announce the winners of the competition call for vloggers as part of the ‘Made of Us’ campaign, which ran online from 7 December 2022 to 7 January 2023. The names and profiles of all selected vloggers are available at the following link.
The Made of Us campaign aims to promote a positive image of the EU to the people of the Western Balkans, and vice versa. It will showcase the opportunities that are already present in the region to ensure a thriving common future, with the help of EU support. The format features 12 young vloggers from both the WB6 and the EU as the campaign’s protagonists. They will travel across the region in pairs, one EU and one WB vlogger for each destination, and share their experiences of special landmarks, unique cultural heritage sites and EU projects that they visit.
After being selected, the winners participated in a training activity at European Commission premises in Brussels on 14-15 March. During the training, they had the opportunity to meet each other and to learn more about the purpose of the campaign, as well as topics such as storytelling to communicate EU values. They also had the privilege of meeting high-level EU officials such as Mr. Gert Jan Koopman, Director-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations.
The vloggers are expected to embark on their trip in the second half of April after final preparations. They will become the official content creators of the third WeBalkans campaign, and the audience will see the EU-Western Balkans road trip directly through their eyes. They will document their experiences and share the content through WeBalkans’ social media and their own Instagram channels.
Discover who they are by visiting the official Made of Us campaign webpage.
