Tuesday 17 December 2013

The Rural Income Generation (RIG) project implemented by Save The Children in Armenia is one of the two winners of the 2013 “Put your project in the headline” photo competition. The competition was held by the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre.

As a result, the project won a full media coverage of its work, including:

  • A photo reportage by a professional photographer of the Agence France Press;
  • An audio story made with AFP photos with voice-over of the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre;
  • A feature story written by a professional local journalist  to be placed in the leading newspapers of the country of the project;
  • Promotion of the project on the website, mailing list, and social media platforms of the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre.

On the occasion of the EU Cooperation Day 2013, 21 September, the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre, in cooperation with INTERACT ENPI, invited all EU funded projects implemented in the EU Neighbourhood to submit their best photo describing how they are making a difference.

The best pictures of the East and the best pictures of the South were shortlisted by the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre and published on the Facebook wall of the Centre on 7 October 2013. People had to vote with a `like` for their favourite photos. Two winning projects, one for the East and one for the South, were to be announced as a result of voting.

Ballots closed on Sunday 13 October at midnight, and the RIG photo was claimed as the winner from East.

Save the Children thanks everyone who helped the Rural Income Generation Project win! They also spread a word about the change we bring to children in Armenia.
