​...For more than 20 years, the industry association has been the professional communication platform for all those who deal with the strategic planning, creation, implementation and management of audiovisual communication in television, film, radio, Internet, mobile, games and events.

The industry association Eyes & Ears of Europe was founded in 1996 by filmmakers from the German television landscape. The aim was to promote awareness of media designers and marketers for their products, to encourage quality-related debates and identify future-oriented perspectives.

Information Exchange • Quality Awareness • Promotion of Young Talent

​Eyes & Ears of Europe

  • represents and promotes job-specific, European interests in the areas of design, promotion and marketing of audiovisual media
  • strengthens the experience and information sharing among members
  • promotes the quality awareness of members for their products and work processes
  • supports young talent and the vocational education

Media Convergence presents a challenge

Zeljko Karajica, President of Eyes & Ears of Europe, summarizes the current challenges: "The anchoring of Eyes & Ears of Europe on all platforms is important to us." Today it's no longer just about the design, promotion and marketing on TV, but also about how audiovisual content can be presented and sold on the web. Another challenge is the combination of web and TV. "It raises the question of how formats on the web can be meaningfully linked on the classic platforms TV, radio, print, but also on events and mobile ," said Karajica.

International exchange is an important goal

"We will build on the overall performance of all the dedicated members of Eyes & Ears of Europe. During the next few years we want our association to continue to establish itself, especially in the European countries in order to promote international exchange with Eyes & Ears of Europe and to provide even more services to our members, "says Corinna Kamphausen, managing director of Eyes & Ears of Europe.

With numerous events and other offerings we have - thanks to the dedicated support of many members - succeeded in establishing Eyes & Ears of Europe as the association for audiovisual communication design.

"It is important that we strengthened the roots of European design, and have reinforced their own identity against the U.S. influence."
