Documentarians focusing on public health can compete for a grant.

Brazil's Vice Presidency of Education, Information and Communication (VPEIC/Fiocruz) and the Health Institute of Communication and Scientific and Technological Information (ICICT/Fiocruz) organize a contest to support audiovisual productions.

The competition invites original and unpublished audiovisual projects that disseminate knowledge and stimulate debates on public health issues. Possible topics include primary health care, family health, neglected, communicable and noncommunicable diseases, teenage pregnancy, breastfeeding, mental health and more.

Seven projects, including one animation and six documentaries, will receive BRL85,000 to BRL220,000, in addition to the Fiocruz Video Seal.
