Chance to win up to €1,000 worth of digital camera equipment, plus a trip for two to Brussels

The 'Europe in my Region' photo competition aims to highlight the excellent work that projects across Europe are doing with the help of EU funding, and explore what these projects mean to local communities.

To take part, all participants need to do is take a photo (maximum three photos per contestant) of a project which includes evidence of EU regional funding (e.g. featuring a billboard, signpost, plaque, etc., with the EU flag and funding information in the pictures).

Participants will be invited to enter photos in two categories:

The competition will be hosted on the European Commission's Facebook page.

Two winners will be selected in each category, one by popular vote (voting begins on 27 August and ends on 7 September) and one by jury. Each winner will receive €1 000 to spend on digital camera equipment and a trip for two to Brussels during the European Week of Regions and Cities (8-11 October 2012).
