AUSTRALIA - List of EEAS calls for tenders for the current year
Journalists are invited to apply for the 2017 European Union-QANTAS Journalist Award.
Now in its 25th year the award is open to an Australian journalist with more than three years working experience in print or electronic media. They will need to satisfy the selection panel that he or she would benefit from a working visit to the European Union institutions and two to three Member States. While the subject of the project proposal is open to the journalist's particular interests, it must be based on European themes relevant to an Australian audience.

It was co-hosted by the EU Delegation as well as the Italian Embassy to Australia and the Australia-EP Parliamentary Group.
The EUVP is jointly sponsored and administered by the European Parliament and the European Commission and has been in operation since 1974. Australia has participated in the programme since 1983 sending over 138 visitors to Europe during that time.

Its overall objective is to broaden and deepen the existing ties between the EU and Australia and in so doing, to help shape the vision for the partnership, based on the EU-Australia Framework Agreement and forthcoming EU-Australia Free Trade Agreement.
