Cedefop, the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, has launched a photo competition inviting all EU residents, aged 18 to 30, to share their education and training experience through a photo.


The competition theme is ‘Youth in education and training’ and the deadline for the submission of photos is on 16 March (23:59 CET). The two winners will be announced on 4 April and will receive an invitation to participate in the European Youth Event (EYE 2016) at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on 20 and 21 May, where the winning and shortlisted photos will be exhibited. Cedefop will cover travel and accommodation costs (two nights).

Cedefop is interested in how young people see themselves in their school- or work-based environment. Participants are expected to use the hashtag #CedefopPhotoAward on Instagram for their contributions. The competition is open to all EU residents, aged 18 to 30 (at the time they submit the photo), regardless of profession, on condition that they conform to the Cedefop photo award rules.
