To take part, all you have to do is upload photos of a project clearly showing the billboard or plaque or poster, with the EU flag somewhere in the picture, so we know that it has received EU funding. Have a look at the example photos below to see what the billboards and plaques look like.
Feel free to be creative and include some fun elements in the photo! We would also like to hear your impressions of the project and what it means to you.
Four winners will be selected, one by popular vote and three by an independent jury composed of photographers and communications specialists. Voting for the popular vote begins on 26 August and ends on 6 September – any Facebook user can vote for your photo, so motivate your friends to do so! Winners will be announced by mid-September 2013.
Each winner will receive €1 000 to spend on digital camera equipment and a trip for two to Brussels during the European Week of Regions and Cities (7-10 October 2013).
