Join the DiscoverEU competition

August 17, 2022

Did you apply to one of the #DiscoverEU application rounds in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022? Then don’t think twice and participate in the DiscoverEU Photo & Video competition!

The competition will take place from 15 July until 15 October 2022, with a different theme each month.

What does green living look like? Imagine a future in which green towns and cities are the norm. What would they look like? In the August edition of the DiscoverEU Photo & Video Competition, we are inviting you to capture the sights and sounds of #greenliving. Perhaps you’ve come across a plant-covered building, or a lush rooftop garden – at home or on the road. Share a photo or video, and you may win €100 worth of prizes!

The competition will run with the #NewEuropeanBauhaus theme until 15 September!

This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the crucial role of trees with your picture and to encourage tree-planting actions among organisations and citizens. Be part of the change, and support the goal of having an additional #3BillionTrees in the EU.

Who can participate?
