Take part in the second phase of #CedefopPhotoAward!

Join the second phase of the #CedefopPhotoAward photo competition for a chance to win a trip to Thessaloniki, Greece.

The theme of the photo competition organised by Cedefop is ‘Youth in education and training’. We are interested in how young people see themselves in their school- or work-based learning environment.

All you need to take part is an Instagram account, be an EU resident and be 18 to 30 years old. You have until 11 September to share your education and training experience through a photo. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #CedefopPhotoAward on Instagram for your contributions.

The winners of the first and second prize will be invited to visit Cedefop in Thessaloniki, Greece, and join the opening weekend of the 57th Thessaloniki International Film Festival. Cedefop will cover travel and accommodation costs and access to the Thessaloniki International Film Festival from 4 to 6 November 2016.

The competition started on 16 February 2016; the first phase ended on 16 March 2016 and the second and final phase ends on Sunday 11 September 2016. The winning photos of the first phase are being exhibited at the European Youth Event (EYE) at the European Parliament seat in Strasbourg on 20 and 21 May 2016; the final winning photos will be exhibited at Cedefop in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The right to publish in the magazine belongs to everyone!


M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
