Lviv Media Forum has created a platform for finding partnerships
The Nibly app was designed to facilitate the interaction between media professionals from different countries. You no longer need to look for a specialist in six handshakes — just view a profile in Nibly and start to chat.
Currently, this is the best app for journalists, media workers and those involved. You can find projects and jobs for journalists, editors, media managers, translators, photographers, videographers, PR, SMM, etc.
“Since February 24, our work phone wouldn’t stop ringing: foreign editorial offices sent requests for comments, international journalists asked to find a fixer or a translator or to help find a character for a documentary, — says product manager Nata Bolibrukh. — Lviv Media Forum did not have the resources to resolve all issues, as we focused on helping Ukrainian media workers.
Nevertheless, we understood that communication, cooperation, and collaboration are highly significant. That is why we created Nibly. Now a media specialist search will be quick and easy, regardless of location.”
Why Nibly is a top app for journalists and creators?
It is, indeed, one of the best apps for journalists and media specialists in Ukraine and Europe. The application has a wide range of functionality, both for companies looking for specialists and for specialists themselves.
Profiles of companies and specialists. Both companies (editorial boards and agencies) and specialists can create an account in the application.
Nibly allows companies to make job offers and choose a specialist among those who have responded. Specialists can create a profile with links to their portfolio and view offers in the selected work region. Nibly ensures transparency and security of interaction by the culture of feedback. Both parties can leave verified feedbacks, which will be displayed in the profile.
Suggestions. Now in Nibly, only companies can create job offers. In addition to the description of the task, the job opportunity contains the terms of payment: monetary reward or pro bono. The specialist indicates the desired compensation and time needed and then responds to an offer. As soon as the company chooses a doer, they contact this person in a chat about all the details.
Opportunities. The Nibly section is for those looking for self-development as well as work. Grants, international exchange programs, residencies, and other self-improvement opportunities are posted here.
Blog. Useful articles and practical tips from LMF, that help in the daily work of media professionals.
“We’re glad to join the development of such an innovative product for the Ukrainian media because we believe that this is another step towards Ukraine’s victory in the war, — says the Element Agency Team, the app developers. — During our work, we focused on creating a user-friendly and intuitive interface, which has all the necessary functionality for the search of the job or a job performer and instant communication. In the app design, we referred to the basic LMF branding — colour scheme, concise presentation of the information and clarity.”
Nibly is now available in Europe, but the team plans to scale it worldwide. Nibly will not be available in Russia or Belorussia.
The project was implemented with the support of the European Union under the House of Europe program.
