Ukraine joins all Creative Europe programs
 18 Jun 2024
The European Commission has confirmed Ukraine's participation in all activities within the framework of the EU program "Creative Europe", including the Media section.

"Today, the General Directorate of the European Commission for Communication Networks, Content and Technology officially informed the MCIP of Ukraine about the consent from the European Commission to Ukraine’s full participation in all activities of the EU program ‘Creative Europe’ (2021-2027), including in the ‘Media’ section,” the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy informed.

According to the agreement between Ukraine and the EU on Ukraine's participation in the "Creative Europe" program, concluded on December 15, 2021, Ukrainian organizations are entitled to participate in the contests within the "Culture" and "Intersectoral Cooperation" sections. However, their participation in the "Media" section remained limited until the completion of the processes of bringing Ukraine's national legislation in the audiovisual field into compliance with EU law.

"In general, the decision was a result of the European Commission's positive assessment of Ukraine's progress in bringing the national legislation on the audiovisual industry closer to the requirements of the EU Audiovisual Media Services Directive," the ministry said.

"Creative Europe" is a framework program of the European Union aimed at supporting and strengthening the competitiveness of the European cultural, creative, and audiovisual sectors, as well as preserving, developing, and promoting the cultural and linguistic diversity of European countries.

The program is the main instrument for financing the cultural sphere. Its total budget for 2021-2027 stands at EUR 2.44 billion.

Ukraine has been participating in the Creative Europe program since 2016.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, two Ukrainian film festivals received grants from Creative Europe.
