Deadline: 25 August 2014
Open to: EU residents aged 18 or above
Prizes: a trip to Brussels and €1 000 to spend on digital camera equipment
The third annual ‘Europe in My Region’ Photo Competition takes place this summer and once again aims to raise awareness of projects which have received funding as part of European Union regional policy. As in previous editions, the competition is run via the European Commission’s Facebook page. To enter the competition, all entrants need to do is take a photo of a project receiving European Union funding with the plaque or billboard with funding information and the EU flag somewhere in the picture.
It is an opportunity for a personal reflection on the role of EU projects from people who are living, working or visiting near projects and to celebrate the work they do.
The Competition is open to European Union residents aged 18 or above. Participants do not have to be a professional photographer and they may submit a maximum of three entries.
The 100 pictures with the highest amount of votes, plus up to 50 entries that were not included in the group with the highest votes, are put forward to a jury who will select three winners. Those winners will receive a trip to Brussels for two people (including travel and accommodation, between 6 to 9 October 2014) and €1,000 to spend on digital camera equipment as a prize.
Entries will be accepted until Monday 25 August 2014 (at noon, Central European Summer Time).
Participants may enter the Competition by uploading their entries to the Europe in My Region Facebook application on the European Commission’s Facebook page.
