ADAMI Media Prize for Cultural Diversity in Eastern Europe

One of the six press conferences of ADAMI Media Prize for Cultural Diversity in Eastern Europe was held in Tbilisi on 16th September 2015 at the Europe House. Its objective was to present the idea behind this new initiative and launch of the international media competition awarding outstanding films, TV and online programs promoting cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue. ADAMI is funded by the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany and aims at increasing interests and coverage of ethnic and religious minorities, civic integration and cultural diversity topics within the audiovisual media of the six Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova, Azerbaijan, Belarus). The project is supported also by the CIVIS Media Foundation, the EBU (European Broadcasting Union), Deutsche Welle, Georgian Public Broadcaster and National Television of Ukraine.

The initiative and the conditions for participating in the competition were presented by the Programme Director Mr. Stefan Tolz. The relevance of the initiative and the topics covered by the project for Georgia and the region were highlighted by the invited guest speakers:

Mrs. Bettina Cadenbach (German Ambassador in Georgia),
Mrs. Nana Jorjadze (Georgian Movie Director)
Mr. Johannes Grotzky (Chairman of the Advisory Board of the ADAMI Media Prize)
Mrs. Tinatin Berdzenishvili (Head of Public Affairs Department under Georgian Public Broadcaster)

The ADAMI encourages all Georgian media professionals to participate in this new competition and submit film, TV or online program contributions promoting peaceful coexistence of people of different national, ethnic, religious or cultural backgrounds. The ADAMI offers a unique chance to connect with professionals from other Eastern Partnership countries and the EU.
