A brief guide for participants

To guide you on how to compete, we invited 3 bloggers and 2 photographers to Charleroi, Belgium. This city suffered from the post-industrial crisis and is developing many urban projects to renew its city centre. EU funds play an important role in this reconversion with various projects co-financed.
That’s why we all met at Quai10, a cultural centre that opened just a year ago. Watch the video to learn more about the story of Charleroi and listen to the podcasts to hear tips and tricks from these talented professionals. Learn how they approached their subject!
