Europe Direct ELIAMEP Photography Contest 2019: “Our Europe: Common Roots, Common Future”

On the occasion of Europe Day 2019 (9th of May), the Europe Direct Information Centre hosted at ELIAMEP (EDIC ELIAMEP) is organizing a photography contest titled: “Our Europe: Common Roots, Common Future”.

The contest is open to all photography enthusiasts; all they need is a camera and an abundance of imagination!

Greek citizens who live in other EU countries, as well as EU citizens who live in Greece, can apply. Participants should depict elements (locations, objects, events etc.) in their host country that remind them of their home.

Each participant can send one (1) (colored or black-and-white) photograph to the e-mail address: [email protected] until the 8th of May. The picture must be in .jpg or .gif format and must be named after the participant’s surname. Please mention the reference “Photography Contest 2019” in the e-mail subject.

After the 8th of May we will simultaneously upload all the photographs on our Facebook page, in an album entitled “EDIC ELIAMEP Photography Contest 2019”.

Voting for the best picture will then begin and will last from the 9th of May (Europe Day ) until the 23rd of May. The winning photograph will be announced on the 24th of May, to commemorate the 2019 European Parliament elections! Share the photographs and let your friends now, by using the hashtag: #EDICELIAMEP_Photo.
