An integral part of the European vocational skills week (#EUVocationalSkills), Cedefop's annual photo competition, 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, a total of 380 learners from 73 VET schools, supported by 76 teachers/tutors, told their VET experience through photos and a short narrative.
Two winning teams will be selected to travel to Helsinki with their teacher/tutor for the European vocational skills week in October, where one of them will be awarded the first prize following an online vote (details on voting will be announced at a later stage). The two teams will attend a gala dinner and the award ceremony.
A third winning team will travel to Thessaloniki for the opening of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival (#TIFF60) on 31 October.
The winning and runner-up photo stories will be exhibited during #TIFF60 and the #EUVocationalSkills week.
