An integral part of the European vocational skills week (#EUVocationalSkills), the #CedefopPhotoAward, which was launched in 2016, is an initiative endorsed by the European Commission, aiming to showcase the vocational education and training (VET) experience and raise its visibility across the European Union, Norway and Iceland.
In this year’s edition, 100 teams of learners from 18 European countries and 77 VET schools submitted their photo stories. A total of 280 learners told their VET experience through photos and a short narrative.
Two winning teams will be selected to travel to Vienna with their teacher/tutor for the European vocational skills week in November. They will attend a gala dinner on 8 November, where the two winning stories will be showcased, and the award ceremony the following day.
The third prize will be a trip to Thessaloniki for the opening of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (#TIFF59) on 1 November.
The winning and runner-up photo stories will be exhibited during #TIFF59 and the #EUVocationalSkills week.
