During the sign-up process, you are asked to provide information about how you meet the eligibility criteria.
Accreditation is open to independent European producers or distributors, i.e. those established in Europe and offering European content (see below for the definition of European content).
During the sign-up process you are asked as well, for an affirmation that you meet this and the other criteria.
Once you have signed up, we submit your application to Creative Europe MEDIA to check that you meet the criteria and that there is still space left. We aim to let you know within a week at most whether you have been accepted.
We particularly welcome applications from low audiovisual capacity countries, the newcomers and those who have received MEDIA support in the recent past.

- the majority of the work has been or is to be produced by companies established in one or more countries participating in Creative Europe MEDIA, and
