#EU4FairWork competition open for workers and employers

As part of the first European campaign for declared work, the European Platform tackling undeclared work and the European Labour Authority (ELA) have launched a #EU4FairWork social media competition, calling on workers and employers from across the EU to share their personal stories about working declared.

Until 4 September, participants will get their chance to win great prizes by participating in the competition and helping spread the message that declared work pays off. To do so, they can submit a photo or video clip of up to 90 seconds representing what declared work means to them and its benefits, along with a short description. The campaign slogan ‘Earn. Declare. Benefit’ and the hashtag #EU4FairWork should be included in a creative way.

How to participate

Workers can submit their entry online and win prizes such as a tablet, a camera, and more. Employers can also participate and win prizes such as a corporate video and a training voucher, and more.

The lucky winners will be announced during the week of 7 September 2020.


Undeclared work affects us all. It puts workers at a multitude of risks, hampers fair competition and undermines public finances, social protection and wider social cohesion. It occurs in all kinds of economic sectors, both within countries and across borders.
