Azerbaijan: EU celebrates launch of its media projects

June 15, 2017

On 14 June, the European Union Delegation to Azerbaijan brought together partners and friends to celebrate the launch of the 'AvropadASAN' radio programme and web platform. The EU Delegation also presented awards to the winners of two recent competitions: the ‘#EUaroundU – Tell your story!’ contest for young people from the Eastern Partnership countries and the ‘Spot Europe in Azerbaijan’ photo competition.

The ‘AvropadASAN’ radio programme is a joint project of the EU Delegation, ADA University, Centre of Excellence in EU Studies of ADA University and ASAN Radio. It features educational, informative and entertaining news and music from Europe.

The website is the first web platform of its kind in the Azerbaijani language, covering the topics of culture, arts, education, intercultural dialogue and tourism, with a special emphasis on interaction and exchange between the EU, its Member States and Azerbaijan.

The EU-funded ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ project conducted the #EUaroundU – Tell your story!’ contest in March 2017. The contest invited young people from the Eastern Partnership countries   ̶ Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine   ̶ to write personal stories highlighting the impact that the EU had on their personal life or community.

The ‘Spot Europe in Azerbaijan’ photo competition was organised by the EU Delegation, calling the participants to send photos taken in Azerbaijan which show a clear connection to the EU or Europe.
