To better communicate about its mission and achievements, Geneva Call seeks to set up a framework contract with one or several suppliers (individual or company) able to produce a wide array of high-quality photography and AV outputs upon demand.


Selected applicants will be qualified as pre-agreed suppliers of the organization within a framework contract of an initial duration of two years.
