Despite the coronavirus pandemic, CEDEFOP, in cooperation with the European Commission, is organising the next edition of the #CEDEFOPPHOTOAWARD 2020: your green or digital skills story photo contest. You can win a trip to Germany or Greece and train tickets for travel through 33 countries in Europe!

The contest, Cedefop’s initiative to promote excellence in VET across the EU and beyond, offers young learners, as well as adults in continuing education, the chance to showcase their talent.

Teams of up to four VET learners in the European Union, Norway and Iceland are invited to share their VET experience relating to green or digital skills in a creative photostory, accompanied by a narrative of up to 100 words, explaining the idea behind their work. Individual entries will not be accepted.

For the first time this year, participants have the option to create an additional short video (up to 60 seconds), highlighting the photostory’s main message.


Prizes include trips to the European vocational skills week 2020 in Berlin or to the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, and Interrail tickets.

Two winning teams, accompanied by their teacher/tutor will travel to Berlin in November for the #EUVocationalSkills week main celebrations, where the first prize winners will be announced. A third team will win the Prix du Jury and travel to Thessaloniki for the opening ceremony of the International Film Festival in November. Cedefop will showcase the photostories of the winners and runners-up in exhibitions in both cities.

All learners in the team with the best video will win Interrail global passes to travel for five days within one month in as many as 33 countries. You can win an award for both a photostory and a video!


The deadline for submissions is 15 September 2020 at 23:59 CET.
