photo_call_for_entries_MDI_websiteWith countries in the region neighboring Russia facing the growing trends of state- and oligarch-controlled media, fake news, and propaganda, Eurasian audiences are being increasingly exposed to biased information. At the same time, they also face many common challenges, from financial woes to global health issues and the threat of radicalized groups, which require quality objective coverage.

The millions of people affected by these challenges need to understand them in order to make better decisions, strive for better lives, and call for change. New and more creative ways of informing people and broadening the audience for entertaining but informative, high-quality content must be found.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and the Media Diversity Institute (MDI) with selected partners and experts from the region will help talented local individuals, media, civil society representatives and others, to develop new ways to inform and engage audiences with entertaining, locally-relevant, high-quality content.

Country: Serbia

Serbia_Migrants_ObrenovacBy claiming that a group of migrants tried to kidnap a baby as her mother was walking down the street, some Serbian tabloids misinformed the public, thereby causing panic and fear amongst citizens in Obrenovac, a small town near Belgrade. The information about the alleged attack first appeared on Facebook as a post by the baby’s uncle. It was used as a fact and basis for the sensationalist and discriminatory reports on migrants published in the Serbian tabloids Blic, Kurir and Telegraf.

The negative stereotypes and generalisations of migrants as 'ungrateful and unpleasent' quickly appeared in many Serbian media outlets.
