EUSAIR Facility Point is organising a contest for the best EUSAIR press contribution. 

EUSAIR (EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region), one of the four EU Macro-regional Strategies, joins together 10 countries striving to find solutions for common challenges in the common sea basins and its hinterlands. The countries and the stakeholders work together for the benefit of the entire Adriatic and Ionian Region. The Strategy promotes economic growth and prosperity in the Region, by improving its attractiveness, competitiveness, and connectivity. Additionally, it also contributes to the protection of sea, coastal and inland environment and ecosystems. 

One of the issues EUSAIR is dealing with is a low-level of awareness of its work and even of its existence. In order to promote excellence in journalism and recognize outstanding contributions that raise awareness about the EUSAIR and its role for the development of the region, EUSAIR press contest will be held. 

The contest can be entered by any journalist from EU and/or EUSAIR country with a contribution on the topic of EUSAIR and macro-regional cooperation. The submissions can be written or audio-visual. All the contributions published by recognised news organisation between 1 June 2022 and 30 June 2023 are eligible. The contribution should be submitted by 30 June 2023 via online form accessible below. 

The winner will be announced at the Mediterranean Coast and Macro-regional Strategies Week 2023 in Izola in September. The award will be given to the journalist who will most persuasively tell the story of EUSAIR, its achievements and, among others, highlight the value of macro-regional cooperation.
