"Europe in my Region" Photo Competition

(01/08/2012)

Would you like to win up to €1,000 worth of digital camera equipment, plus a trip for two to Brussels?  Take part in the 'Europe in my Region' photo competition this summer!

The competition will be hosted on the European Commission’s Facebook page. Participants will be invited to enter photos in two categories:

  • 'My Project', open to organisations that have benefited from EU regional funding (ie from the European Regional Development Fund or the Cohesion Fund)
  • 'Eyewitness', open to anyone living in the EU who spots a project either in their region or when visiting another region.

To take part, all participants need to do is take a photo of a project which includes evidence of EU regional funding (e.g. featuring a billboard, signpost, plaque, etc., with the EU flag and funding information in the pictures). Two winners will then be selected in each category; one by popular vote and one by jury from a selection of the most popular remaining entries. Photos will be judged on their aesthetic quality, creativity and relevance to EU regional policy.

Help us to share the news about the competition and show off some of the great projects around Europe receiving regional funding. Follow @EU_Regional on Twitter and the EC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/EuropeanCommission) for more news soon. And finally, whether you’re at home or abroad, don’t forget to keep your eye out for projects and your camera at the ready!
