Join "My City"
photography competition

The European Environment Agency (EEA) invites you to participate in the ‘My City’ photography competition and share the moments you captured in European cities

Choose a European city to tell a positive or negative story through your photos.

You can focus on one of the following three categories:

1. Sustainable lifestyle in a city
How does my lifestyle impact the environment? Can I change my shopping list and eating habits to help combat climate change? A shower or a bath? Solar panels or a vegetable garden on my roof?

2. Getting around in a city
Do I cycle or drive? What is the quickest and most pleasant way to get to work or school? Do I enjoy the journey on public transport?

3. Leisure time in a city
A stroll in the parks or a dive in the lake? Going to the theatre or for a run? What is the best way of experiencing my city? How do I spend my free time?

Don’t lose this opportunity! You can receive a cash prize of 1000 € in each category (Sustainable lifestyle in a city; Getting around in a city; Leisure time in a city), and 500 € for the Public Choice award and the Youth Prize. The Youth Prize will be awarded to the winning entry, selected among those submitted by persons aged between 18 and 24 (born between calendar years 1992-1998) to any of the competition categories.

Hurry up! You have until 15 August 2016 to share your vision!

Please send us you contributions at contact@mediactiveyouth.net

We welcome a variety of forms: articles, photos, video content, caricatures... When sending us an article, consider including a suitable photo to go with it, thus making your contribution more visually appealing.

All contributions should be dedicated to the issues of youth
and youth policy.

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.
