Vocational education and training (VET) learners in the European Union, Norway and Iceland are invited to take part in #CedefopPhotoAward 2018. The award is an initiative endorsed by the European Commission, aiming to showcase VET excellence.

An integral part of the European vocational skills week (#EUVocationalSkills), the #CedefopPhotoAward is organised for the third year running.     

Teams of up to four members are invited to produce an original photo story, which demonstrates their VET experience, along with a narrative of up to 100 words explaining the idea behind their work.

There will be awards for the three best photo stories. The first and second winning teams will travel to Vienna with their teacher/tutor for the European vocational skills week. They will attend a gala dinner on 8 November, where the two winning stories will be showcased, and the award ceremony on 9 November. 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 displayed at special exhibitions during #TIFF59 and #EUVocationalSkills week.

For inspiration check out our promo video where students and last year’s winners encourage VET learners to form teams and participate in the 2018 competition.
