The competition wants to highlight the work that projects across Europe are doing with the help of EU funding, and explore the meaning of these projects to local communities. To enter, all you need to do is take a photo of a project receiving EU funding you know or have seen, with the plaque or billboard with funding information and the EU flag somewhere in the picture.
You can upload up to three photos on the European Commission Facebook app for a chance to win €1.000 to spend on digital camera equipment and a trip for two to Brussels in October 2013 during the European Week of Regions and Cities (7-10 October 2013).
The deadline to post your photos is 23 August 2013, 12:00pm CET. Don't forget that to participate you must be 18 and a resident of a EU country.
Four winners will be selected: one by popular vote and three by the jury. Voting begins on 26 August and ends on 6 September and any Facebook user can vote for your photo, so encourage your friends!
