The first Media Initiative for the Viennese media landscape will get underway in 2020.
By launching its Media Initiative, the Vienna Business Agency is supporting the Viennese media landscape with €2.5 million per year from 2020 to 2022. It will provide funding to promote projects with a view to securing the diversity and quality of the local media landscape for the long term. This includes sustainable and innovative ideas, measures to secure excellent working conditions and efforts to develop new media offerings ready for their market launch.
Individually tailored to the needs of media start-ups and media houses on the one hand and freelance journalists and smaller media companies on the other, the support offered by Media Initiative will be disbursed in two funding programmes: “Vienna Media Initiative – Medienprojekt” and “Vienna Media Initiative – Medienstart”.
Applications for funding through both programs in the Vienna Media Initiative can be submitted online until 5 November via the Vienna Business Agency website.
