We are looking for new, creative and original ideas and to deliver the message:

"You Cannot Build Europe Without the Consent of the Citizens"

Send us your video!

Send us your videos, they can be as funny or as serious as you like. You can use actors or have none. Use weird props as many as you can make.

Have just words or no words, just sounds or send us a silent movie. Show us your feelings towards the EU in pictures. Create your own animation, mini musical, action film or comedy. Let there be a monologue or dialogue. You can make your film in black and white or colour; it could present the future or look back to the past. Just make it original!


1st Prize = €1000          2nd Prize = €500          3rd Prize = €250
