For the second year in a row, the PES Group in the Committee of the Regions is organising a photo competition for young Europeans, aged 18-30. This year the competition, organised under the theme "Europe in my everyday life", intends to raise awareness among young people on the positive impact of European integration on their everyday lives.
The photo competition is an opportunity for young Europeans to show what Europe really means for them and express their creativity through their camera lenses.
The competition is organised in the framework of 2009, European year for Creativity and innovation. The competition has been officially launched on 12 february, on the occasion of the PES Group meeting in Brussels, and will close on 31 May 2009.
A jury composed of PES Group members and professionals in the visual arts will meet to select 6 winners who will be awarded high-value photographic equipment and will be invited to a Conference on "the added value of the European Union" that the PES Group will organise in Brussels, in September 2009. Photos will be displayed in an exhibition.
