Webtv, webradio, YouTube Channels, innovative online programmes…You have a project that aims at giving a voice to young people in the Arab world and would like to take to another level ? Apply for D-Jil and benefit from support to produce online media content for the new generation!

Focused studies in the Arab world show that young people want to play a more active role in the media. They are turning increasingly to social and online media, which offer them greater opportunities for interaction and content publication.

D-Jil is supporting youth-focused online media initiatives in the following countries: Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.

When the present call for applications closes, 30 innovative projects will be short-listed and a hackathon will be organised to enable those involved to consolidate their projects during an interactive session. After the hackathon, the 10 best projects will receive funding and individual coaching.

D-Jil proposes the following to the hackathon winners:

  • A grant of €60,000 to €80,000 for projects of 12 to 24 months;
  • Individual coaching for selected project leaders for the production of media content and for administrative and financial management;
  • Mentoring for selected project leaders relating to the content produced and also to administrative and financial management;
  • Media studies and networking activities (participation in a conference dedicated to "media and young people").
