Entry to this competition is free and professional and non-professional producers are invited to enter all types of innovative educational media to Europe’s premier educational media competition.

The aim of the MEDEA Awards is to encourage innovation and good practice in the use of media (audio, video, graphics and animation) in education. The awards also recognise and promote excellence in the production and pedagogical design of media-rich learning resources and are particularly open to entries from European practitioners, organisations and production facilities.

The MEDEA Award for Professionally Produced Educational Media 2013 which will be awarded to the best professional educational media produced by a professional company or semi-professional production unit.

Three additional special prizes will be awarded:
The Special Prize for European Collaboration in the creation of Educational Media 2013
The Special Prize for Promoting EU Citizenship 2013
The Special MEDEA Jury 2013 Prize
