Call for digital and traditional media promotion

Digital and traditional media promotion for Eurochild’s online breakfast webinars

Eurochild seeks to contract an agency to develop and execute media engagement in five key geographies in Europe to promote its flagship conference. This year, the conference will take the form of three online breakfast webinars from 18-20 November 2020 with political and institutional leaders responsible for Europe’s recovery post COVID-19. The webinars will focus on how to put children and their interests at the heart of Europe’s recovery.

The agency should lead on the concept development, draft key messages and press releases, create relevant digital visual content and pitch to journalists and media platforms. They should develop and execute a media engagement plan composed of earned and paid media to ensure the event receives the highest recognition of Eurochild’s influential expertise in children’s rights among the targeted audiences. The promotion of the event is expected to begin in October, and last until after the final webinar on 20 November 2020, marking the Universal Children’s Day to promote the need for national and European action to put children at the heart of the recovery.

To gain societal support for a vision of children as rights holders and children’s well-being being a precursor to sustainable and inclusive economic recovery we need to represent compelling stories to reach heart and minds beyond the technocratic audiences. 

In times of social distancing and lockdown, when visual representation of experiences of children and families are lacking, Eurochild wants to lead on the production of audio-visual contents that tell the story of children’s rights across Europe to support greater and better investment in children.  

This content, envisaged as 4 short films estimated 4-5 minutes each, will help bring our struggle closer to new national audiences. Engaging input of the Eurochild Children’s Council and selected members, the content would support our demands for greater investment in children and illustrate Eurochild’s value and impact on the lives of children in Europe. This docu-series should catalyse national action to support our demands and bring long-lasting change. 

Eurochild is seeking to contract this project to a Creative Director who can transform Eurochild’s vision into a docu-series that reaches hearts and minds, manage the planning, production and marketing and distribution of the films.

Profile of the Creative Director 

The selected individual or agency should have relevant experience in content development, content strategy with a focus on audio-visual stories. They should have an interest and ability to engage with policy issues around public investment, child and family policies and have a journalistic understanding of the key issues shaping and disrupting politics, media and society. 

Experience of working in multi-cultural contexts and with transnational projects will be important. The ideal candidate should have worked with international NGOs and should be sensitive to ethical considerations around working with children. They should have a strong technical understanding of video production and have experience of producing high quality documentary films. An understanding of, and experience of producing or using digital content is equally important for the dissemination strategy.
