During the Media4Europe conference, held on October 14th, 2020, the Stars4Media first edition’s results were unveiled.
This project supports innovation in the media sector, through training and cross-border cooperation: 21 Initiatives were co-financed, involving 105 media professionals from 42 media outlets in 17 countries.
Five prizes were awarded to the outstanding initiatives during this virtual conference.
This project is co-funded by the European Commission, based on a ‘rising stars’ budget earmarked by the European Parliament. During the conference, media stakeholders and MEPs – MEP Dace Melbarde (ECR); MEP Margarida Marques (S&D); MEP Ramona Strugariu (Renew Europe); MEP Damian Boeselager (Greens) – considered the continuation of the underlying ‘rising stars’ programme and agreed that Creative Europe should be increased, including more support to media transformation.
