20190906_231116Novapolis Association – Center of Analysis and Initiatives for Development together with the Municipality of Constanta implement in Romania, during the period 01.01.2019-31.12.2021, the project “Communication of Local AthoRities for INtegration in European Towns” (Clarinet Project), project co-funded by the European Union’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (#AMIF), contract no. 821562. A competition „European CLARINET Prize” for public communication campaigns of local authorities on migration and integration is organized within this project.

The CLARINET Award intends to promote and give value to successful, impactful campaigns and communication activities carried out by, or on behalf of, local authorities, and which show how migration in Europe and in Member States can benefit from the positive contribution of migration. Eligible candidates are a National, Regional or Local Authority based in one of the 28 official EU member states. The public authority should have implemented or be in the process of implementing communication campaigns based on the topics of migration and integration in the EU. Campaigns and communication activities produced by external organisations on behalf of a Local Authority will also be accepted. Both closed campaigns/activities and those which are on-going are eligible to apply.

Therefore, if you represent a local, central or regional public authority that has promoted or is implementing a communication campaign about the contribution of migrants to Romanian society, you are invited to read the Award Rules and to complete the form for participating in the CLARINET European Prize. The application form can be found on the project website:
or by accessing the following link:

Applications can be submitted until July 31, 2019 (midnight).

The European CLARINET Award has three main categories: Web and Social Media, Traditional Media and Public Events. Candidates must select just one category when applying for the Award. Each candidate can submit several applications; the same public communication campaign cannot be submitted for more than one category of the Prize. In November 2019, during the General Assembly of ECCAR (European Coalition of Cities against Racism), the Clarinet Prize will be awarded for each category mentioned.
The winners will thus have the opportunity to present their campaign to ECCAR members, thus gaining an important opportunity to enhance the visibility of their campaign and to establish new contacts.

Additional information on the CALRINET Award Rules and other useful information about the project can be found on the project’s website or on the project’s Facebook:
