Commission launches photo competition #MySocialEurope

#MySocialEurope photo competition is open to young people aged 18-30 and living in the EU. Until 4 March 2019, they will have the opportunity to show ‘How should the Future of social Europe look like?’ through their creative lens.

Three lucky winners will be invited to take part in the Young Citizens’ Dialogue event in Sibiu on 8 May and win an InterRail pass to travel in Europe.

The Young Citizens’ Dialogue event in Sibiu will bring together 300 young Europeans to discuss the Future of Europe with Commissioner Marianne Thyssen. During the event, the best 15 photos from this photo contest, including the 3 winning ones, will feature in an exhibition organised by the Commission.

The 12 remaining winning photographers will receive a Fujifilm Instax camera (Mini 90 neo classic), a case and a pack of instax films. The 35 lucky runners-up will take home a Bluetooth speaker.
