The ‘Music against poverty’ contest offers young citizens from the European Union an opportunity to get their message out by submitting a song on the fight against poverty around the world. The song has to contain a message on the fight against poverty or development cooperation. Young Europeans are being encouraged to get involved and give their very personal contribution to help reach the Millennium Development Goals commitment.


All EU citizens between 15 and 25 years old during the submission period may enter the competition. European Commission staff, EU agencies or companies with which the European Commission has contractual relations concerning the contest are prohibited from entering.

Each composition must be original. They must not infringe the publicity or privacy rights of any individual, whether living or deceased, or otherwise impinge upon any person’s personal or proprietary rights. Songs submitted in video format must be suitable for publication in a public forum and must not contain nudity, profanity, or threats of violence and must not serve commercial or advertising purposes for products or services or be inappropriate in any other way.

By participating in this contest and registering their songs on the European Commission's website, contestants agree to abide and be bound by the contest rules and decisions of the European Commission, which are final in all matters relating to the contest.


There are two different prizes: one chosen by a jury of professionals and the other through online voting by Internet users.

The winners of the contest will get a professional studio recording of their song and will be invited to perform during the European Development Days in Brussels in December 2010. Travel and accommodation will be organised and paid for by the European Commission.


The songs submitted will be considered admissible and be published on the contest website only upon approval by the European Commission. For pre-selected songs produced by participants under 18, the European Commission will contact the participants to receive their parent’s or legal guardian's written permission before their song may be considered eligible. Without such written authorisation, the song will not be admissible.

Songs will be judged on the basis of their message, which has to refer to the fight against world poverty and the importance of the European Union’s work in development cooperation.

The European Commission reserves the right to change, extend or reduce the terms and conditions of, or suspend or terminate the contest without prior notice. Depending on the number of submissions it receives, the European Commission reserves the right to end the submission period of the contest earlier than 30 September 2010. The European Commission will inform the public of any such change on its website.
In case of suspicion of fraud, the European Commission reserves the right to cancel the fraudulent votes.
