Interesting activity to students who love Photograpy or study Arts Photography, don't you think? An interesting activity during their summer break.

Students love participate in contests. They get excited to show off their skills no matter the contest. But a contest about photograpy?  

It will be gorgeous inviting 
students in Photography via social networks to valorize European countries. And seeing them traveling on their own region to get a good picture.

They will participate in this photo contest uploading a photo that they can shot in a big city, a small town, whatever in their country.

Genre of photography that can be understood as the product of an artistic interaction between a photographer and an urban public space with EU fundings.

Street or urban photographer’s images are not intended to illustrate a new story. Instead, their primary goal is expressive and communicates a subjective impression of the Eu fundings in their region. 

#EUinMyRegion could be an interesting activity for those students who are enjoying summer holidays or to those students who preparing their exams. During a breack and going, a good relaxing activity.
