Are you a student? You are not travelling without a camera? If so, you have to share your experiences with us!

Apparently it's an another trivial photography competition, but actually its idea is much more than it seems to be. It's not only about the quality of pictures but mainly about showing how students perceive (through their camera lenses) the cultural differences in Europe, but also its beauty and what is often very surprising or on the other hand just ordinary.

Discover Europe, as the name says, is a pan European competition, what gives an opportunity to open for new places, cultures, habits. Everybody perceives the reality from a different perspective and the main goal of the competition is the best expression of the individual view. It doesn't matter if a participant will show us the charm of his own country or his new experiences that he gained during his trip to Europe. The important thing is to show it in a way that will touch the jury.

In 2013 Discover Europe was awarded the 2nd prize in the European Charlmagne Contest held by the European Parliament for non-profit organisations.


The contest is divided into 3 categories: -Citizen of Europe – photos depicting various faces of European -My Europe, my home – photos depicting interesting places and landscapes in Europe -Surprise me, Europe! - photos depicting funny or intriguing situations which happened in Europe

The course: Regional stage – in each one of the two regions Poland is divided into, the jury chooses 10% of the photos, which then will be accepted in the central stage. Moreover, 3 photos from each category are appointed additionally and will be rewarded during the regional galas. Central stage – from the photos chosen in the regional stage, 3 photos in each category are awarded. The central stage ends with the gala and the vernissage of the winning photos. Photos sent from abroad take part only in the central stage!
