The contest #InTheirEyes 2 is a creative regional competition aimed at digital content creators in the 8 countries of the Southern Neighbourhood region: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia. At the beginning, 6 content creators per country will be chosen using a rigorous selection process. They will benefit from a training and will be supported by mentors.
After a second round of selection, only two content creators per country will remain. They will be called The Competitors and will form a team, together with the 2 mentors, a representative of the EU Delegation in their country and a representative of an EU-funded programme/project. Each team will represent its country and will compete with a collaborative audiovisual project.
Entry is free of charge.
Members of the jury, the European institutions’ staff and the EU Neighbours South project team may not enter the competition.
