EC Day 2019 video competition: tell us how EU benefits you and win a prize!

A video competition dedicated to highlight this year’s theme – Europe is you – is currently under way. Join our competition and win interesting prizes!

Why an EC Day?

The European Cooperation Day is an event dedicated to promoting territorial cooperation in Europe. It highlights positive results of projects implemented throughout different regions and different countries. The EC Day takes place as a local event around 21 September every year during which the community can see first-hand how cooperating across borders improves life in and around Europe.

This year, we are organizing a video competition to see how EU benefits citizens of our Programme area.

What kind of video competition?

By organizing the EC Day 2019 video competition, our idea is to see what the EU has done for citizens of Croatia’s and Serbia’s border regions. In line with the slogan of the EC Day 2019 – Europe is you – we want to hear your thoughts and feelings of being part of the EU and how EU benefits you.

You can make videos showing yourself talking about travelling, employment, volunteering or any other experience the EU ensured for you, or videos that show drawing, writing, acting and similar scenes. We are looking for creative and original videos that will show the true spirit of the EU.

Videos can be recorded with smartphones (but the quality should be at least 720p) and should be under 40 seconds.

Who can apply and when?

High school and university and college students are our main target groups, but the competition is open to all citizens living in the Programme area.

The competition is open till 30 June 2019.

What’s the prize?

The video with the most original, innovative and creative way of showing what the EU has done for him or she will win a smart watch. For second and third place, we’ve ensured some interesting awards as well!
