The European Commission’s Directorate-general for Home Affairs is organising a multimedia competition under the theme “Migrants in Europe”.

We are inviting students over 18, who are attending art, journalism, audiovisual and communication schools from the European Union and Croatia to enter an artwork into the competition. It should depict the role migrants that come from outside of Europe, play in European societies.

If you choose to enter, there are three different categories in which works will be judged:

  • Posters
  • Photos
  • Videos

How do I take part?

Your school, college or university has to register on the registration page of our website. Once the registration is validated by the national coordinators, the school receives a ‘log in’. The school can then submit the artworks of one or several teams or individuals in one or several categories.

When the submission phase is over, the artworks will first be evaluated by a national jury. Each national jury will choose the 10 best artworks in their country.

A European jury will then choose 30 European finalists among the national finalists, as well as the 3 eventual winners. The 30 finalist artworks will be published on this site and open to a public vote, who will decide the public’s prize winner.

The four winning schools – one for each category and one public prize -will be awarded a 10.000€ prize.

Three representatives from the school of the thirty finalist works will be invited to Brussels for the prize giving ceremony, for a two-day stay. The trip and accommodation will be paid for by the European Commission.
