Teams of journalists from Central Asia can attend this program.

Internews seeks project ideas for its regional Innovation Lab program "Storycraft2020 – Innovate. Play. Engage," which will be held Feb. 25 to 27 in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.

This program accepts applications from cross-border teams whose members represent different countries of Central Asia (at least two countries). Each team should include specialists in different areas (for example, producers, programmers, designers, journalists, writers, etc.), who will collaborate with each other to create an innovative media project.

The proposed projects should aim to enhance citizens' resilience to radicalization that leads to violence in Central Asia.

The winner will receive a grant of EUR20,000. The winners in four categories– comic strips, game projects on media platforms, video projects and multimedia stories – will also receive grants.

The deadline is Feb. 7.
