An area of 10.5 million square meters inhabited by 680 Million people living in nearly 50 countries. That’s Europe. But how do Europeans live? Is there a certain pattern of life that could be summarized as the one European lifestyle? Or is it maybe the variety that makes life in Europe special?
Youthphotos.eu, the platform for young photographers initiated a photo contest in co-operation with the European Commission looking for the best pictures portraying European lifestyle. How do Europeans under 27 years of age see their life in Europe? What is European in your daily life? That’s what we would like to see in your pictures.
The best pictures will be awarded at the European Youth Media taking place in the European Parliament in June. You can win a Canon camera-set, adobe software and a journey to Cyprus.
