Are you interested in social rights in Europe? Looking for an opportunity to shine a light on social issues that matter to you?

Then read on! The #MySocialRights video competition will give you the opportunity to show your ideas and hopes for the future of social Europe and tell us what it means to you.

All you need is a little imagination and a keen eye and you will be in with a chance to win:

  • a Go-Pro camera
  • a 22-day Interrail Global pass
  • or a donation to a charity

How to participate

To enter the Competition all you need to do is record a video diary of up to 15 seconds in vertical format spanning seven days. The video should show one to two seconds per day and depict social rights, or the lack of social rights, around you.

To reach the widest possible audience, we encourage you to make greater use of pictures and images, and to rely less on speech. Show, don’t tell, is the golden rule!

Then you need to post your video on your Facebook public account by 5 December 2021. In the caption, you should describe the content of your video.

Background

With the European Pillar of Social Rights, the European Commission aims to build a fairer and more inclusive European Union.

The 20 principles of the Pillar show the way towards a strong social Europe that is fair, inclusive and full of opportunity.

To help turn the principles into reality, the Commission is working to engage Europeans on social issues and increase awareness of social Europe.

In line with these goals, the #MySocialRights video competition aims to launch a conversation on social Europe and the European Pillar of Social Rights with the general public.

Specifically, it aims to promote social Europe and social rights among young people across the EU, increasing their awareness on social issues through their creative inputs, and engaging them on EU topics, including social affairs and the future of Europe.
