Media library resources

A picture can, according to the age-old cliché, say more than a thousand words. And although we typically communicate the Grants with words as well as with images, having good pictures that illustrate the work of the Grants is an essential tool in our work.

By the end of 2020, 1 600 projects had already been selected for funding by the EEA and Norway Grants. That is 1 600 ideas taking shape on the ground in the Beneficiary States. The EEA and Norway Grants media library is a digital space for finding and sharing photos and videos that visualise these ideas.

The media library was designed to make finding and sharing assets easy and intuitive. To guide you through, we have created a set of resources with step-by-step instructions to ease you in. In this article, we look over all these resources.

The EEA and Norway Grants media library manual

The media library manual has all the information you need to know to use the library to the fullest extent. In addition to instructions, you can also find answers to questions like ‘What kind of assets you should upload?’, ‘What about the copyright?’ and more.

Media library manual

Chapter 1 provides an overview of the library purpose, legal obligations of use and offers some tips on what kind of assets you should upload to the library.

Chapter 2 is a step-by-step guide to using the media library. You can use the guide as a standalone: find the function you want to perform and follow the instructions. You can also use it together with tutorials. Let’s take a look at them now.


Another easy way to learn to use the library is by following six tutorials available in the media library. Tutorials are numbered – if you are new to the library, you can watch them in the order. If you are looking for help with a specific task, watch the relevant tutorial only.
