ADAMI Media Prize Calls Journalists from Eastern Europe to Apply

TBILISI – Journalists and filmmakers from the EU’s Eastern Partnership countries are currently in the process of applying for the ADAMI Media Prize, a prestigious award that promotes minorities, migration and cultural diversity in Eastern Europe.

Filmmakers, journalists, TV stations, and residents of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine are welcome to apply for the award.

ADAMI will hand out prizes in six different categories including Non-Fiction & Documentaries; Fiction & Entertainment; News & Short non-fiction; Young ADAMI; Websites; and Online Videos.

The organizers were quick to stress that the ADAMI prize builds bridges between different media players in the international market and promotes well-crafted works of journalists and filmmakers.

“ADAMI increases media interest as it promotes cultural diversity and encourages networking between managers and filmmakers in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus,” the organizers said.

The ADAMI Media Prize made its debut last year and was awarded to journalists and filmmakers in five categories.

Georgia’s Giorgi Tskhvediani’s documentary Niko’s Way won the ADAMI Media Prize in the non-fiction category. Chai Khana and Jumpstart Georgia also won the ADAMI Online Prize for Web Pages.

A Georgian-Azeri stand-up comedian was also honored with a special mention.

Submissions are due on October 10.
