EUROPEAN COOPERATION DAY 2019, the video competition starts today!

Interreg programmes commemorate the European Cooperation Day (EC Day) on 21 September every year. And every time they celebrate the value of cooperation through hundreds of events organised in over 30 countries.

The Italy-Albania-Montenegro programme participated in past editions through a series of creative iniziatives: a cooperation exhibition, a film screening,  an arts and crafts workshop for children.

This year, in the framework of the Interact EC Day campaign 2019, we organise an amateur video competition to raise citizens’ awareness about the benefits of being part of Europe and engage them in the values of cooperation. The aim is to capture the essence of the European spirit and feeling through a video that would ‘speak’ to both stakeholders and the general public.

Taking part in the contest is simple! 

Participants will have to make a very short video (maximum duration: 40 seconds) responding very briefly to the question: “Why EUROPE IS YOU?” (how Europe benefits you), which is the slogan of the EC DAY 2019 campaign. 

The competition is open to every citizen of/resident in the cooperation area, as well as high school and university/college students.

The video competition will take place from 13 May to 30 June 2019. In July, the jury will select the finalist videos. The awarding is scheduled during the week of 21 September 2019 or surrounding weeks. The winner will receive 2 smart watches and an official award acknowledging this recognition.

For more details about the competition, technical specificities of the videos, eligibility and other requirements , please see the Terms of Reference.
