Video Challenge: WHAT EUROPE MEANS TO YOU? Win 5.000EUR and go to Brussels

February 1, 2012 | In: , , ,

The European Economic and Social Committee invites you to participate in the 2012 Video Challenge! Be creative and show us what Europe means to you! Since the year 2012 is a European year for “Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations”, incorporating members of older generations into the video production teams is encouraged.


  • A citizen of the European Union Aged 18-30
  • An amateur production team (NB) (e.g. students) which can include one or several members of older generations.


  • The video must be original work and must not infringe the copyright, trademark and intellectual proprietary rights of any third parties.
  • The video should not contain any explicit company references, logos, nor should it promote any brand, product or service.
  • The production team is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary rights and authorisations prior to submitting their video.
  • Music used in the video must be original and/or cleared for copyright to be posted on public websites or be used in public events.
  • As to author rights related to the videos, the production team retains the moral rights for the original work, but accepts to transfer all economic rights (copyright) of the work to the EESC. The production teams thus grant the EESC permission to adapt, edit, modify, format, reproduce, translate, use for public performance, broadcast and communicate their videos to the public. The EESC has the right to use and re-use the video in different media (web, social media etc.) for non-commercial purposes.

Videos must be first posted on an online video channel (e.g. Youtube, Dailymotion etc.) including the team details, video URL and agreeing to the terms and conditions.

Public voting will take place between 18th February 2012 and 2nd March 2012 ending at 12:00. Results from the public vote will determine the top 10 videos. A panel of judges will make their selection of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. This decision will be based on the video’s relation to the theme, its creativity and its overall quality

The prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be awarded at a ceremony held in Brussels on March 15th 2012.  The winners will receive respectively: 1st prize: € 5,000/2nd prize: € 3,000/3rd prize: € 2,000. There will be a prize draw for the voting public.

Entry into the challenge is free and participants can submit their video URL on the dedicated website between untill 15th February 2012.


2 points for all interested and potential participants:

Under an amateur production team we understand that no team member holds a diploma and executes professional activities in the field of film-media or film/video production

The production team has to ask a consent from all the persons who appear in their video in order to prove the respect of privacy (it can be requested by the EESC at a later stage). If minors appear in the video, that consent should be signed by parents or legal tutors.
