Since 2020, Creative Europe MEDIA Offices in Latvia and Estonia joined the initiative and Baltic Producers MEDIA Award has been established, continuing the same goals, as well as fostering active networking, cooperation and co-production between the Baltic countries.

Baltic Producers Jury, consisting of three experienced producers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, will select the Best Short Film Project and award it with Baltic Producers MEDIA Award* – 1000 EUR cash prize.
