The Competition

The EU information campaign ‘For Diversity. Against Discrimination.’ is inviting photography, art and design students from across the EU to make a creative statement for diversity by entering its "Breaking Stereotypes" Photo Competition. Students are asked to create a photo or photo collage that promotes diversity and appeals to a young audience.   

An international jury of photographers, young artists and well-known experts in the fields of design and communication will select the best photos. Contributions will be judged according to their creativity and originality, as well as universal European appeal.

The European Commission is running a five-year pan-European information campaign (from 2003-2007) on combating discrimination on the grounds of racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, age, disability and sexual orientation. The “For Diversity. Against Discrimination.campaign is designed to inform people about their rights under EU anti-discrimination legislation, as well as to promote the positive benefits of diversity in the workplace. Diversity and dialogue are not only the key messages but also the guiding principles of the campaign, which includes pan-European, national and regional measures.

At the same time, the photo competition is running within the framework of a second campaign promoting the fight against discrimination: the European Year of Equal Opportunities for All 2007. This initiative of the European Commission seeks to make people in the EU more aware of their rights to equal treatment and to a life free of discrimination. The activities undertaken during the European Year are intended to address the discrimination some individuals suffer because of their gender, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age, or sexual orientation. These are grounds for discrimination that may be addressed at European level and the Year will try to launch a major debate on the benefits of diversity both for European societies and individuals.

The European Photo Competition for Diversity is one of the major EU-wide projects being held in 2007 with the support of both campaigns. It will be running in all of the 27 EU Member States, inviting photography, art and design students to send in their photo designs, which may be used to convey the campaign's messages to a young audience.
