Belgrade, 5/6/2015 - The Coalition of journalist and media association consisting of UNS, NUNS, NDNV, ANEM and Lokal pres have called on the authorities in Kragujevac to conform the competition for the co-financing of media content production projects to the Law on Public Information and Media and the Rulebook on the Co-financing of Projects for the Realization of Public Interest in the Field of Public Information.

The City of Kragujevac called last week a competition restricting the right to participate to media seated on the territory of the City. In spite the warning issued by the Coalition and the initial promise that the competition will be rectified and released on Thursday, the authorities in Kragujevac failed to deliver on their promise.

As the Coalition was told in that City, the Mayor Radomir Nikolic didn't want to rectify the competition although he was informed it was not in conformity with the Law.

The Coalition reminds that the Law and the Rulebook, eligible for participation in the competition are media publishers registered in the Media Register, as well as legal persons and entrepreneurs that have submitted proof that the co-financed media content will be realized through the media, without stating restrictive provisions under which the applicant of the project must be seated on the territory of the local self-government that has called the competition.

The Coalition reminds that it will not take part in procedures that are not conformed to regulations and that it will not propose candidates for commissions in local governments that shun the Law.

The Ccoalition of journalist and media association follows closely the release of public calls in all municipalities and towns and if such a call is not in accordance with the Law and the Rulebook, it informs them and advises as to how to rectify it.

After the monitoring of the implemented public calls, the Coalition will inform the Ministry of Culture and Media about all the observed irregularities.
