Launched in 2010, the “Prix Jeune Public des Lycéens du PriMed” was renamed the “Prix Averroès Junior” in 2013, before becoming in 2018 the “Prix des Jeunes de la Méditerranée” or in English, the “Mediterranean Young People’s Award”.
The event offers over 3,500 high school students from the French South region and from other countries to become the PriMed festival jury panel. In 2019, students from Algeria, Egypt, Italy, Libya, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia took part.
Only for French-speaking high class students.

By inviting students to watch a selection of 3 documentaries and then debate, exchange their views and vote, this event intends to work as an educational tool for them to learn both about the audiovisual industry and what Mediterranean citizenship is about. In addition to the Prize, a video competition named “I, Citizen of the Mediterranean”, offers students the opportunity to create a one-minute audiovisual and individual production on their smartphone.
Despite a health context that remains uncertain, we hope (and we will do everything we can) this 25th edition of PriMed will take place from December 4th to the 11th, 2021 in Marseille.
Are you interested in registering your students to this event? The deadline is on September 22nd, 2021.

“I, CITIZEN OF THE MEDITERRANEAN” COMPETITION
Through their works, high school students share with us their passions and dreams. They promote and reveal the diversity and richness of the Mediterranean youth who live in the South and North of the region. In a very short format, their work offer a personal, original and innovative perspective on a different theme each year.
