Video and Photography Production RFP - MEPL Lebanon

MSI seeks a Lebanon-based partner to provide video and photo production services (“production house” hereafter) to support MEPL and USAID/Lebanon with its strategic communications needs for video production and photography to enhance Lebanese public awareness of USAID’s assistance to Lebanon and the activities and achievements of the Agency’s programs in sectors such as education, agriculture, microfinance, water and sanitation, reforestation, and good governance. The selected firm should have a proven track record as a production house in the Lebanese market and experience working with international development programs and donors, preferably with USAID and in relevant sectors as noted above. Offerors should propose creative, innovative, and cost-effective approaches to achieve the outcomes and deliver the services noted below, while complying with USAID branding and marking guidelines and other relevant USAID public outreach requirements.
