PROCESS

o We leave the decision to the NCCs of how they want to judge, e.g.:

  • public online voting system (e.g. Facebook)
  •  jury (then we would advise that panel consists of varied people (activists, “technical”
  • people, artistic people – not only people that are involved in the campaign)

o NCCs are responsible for the prizes

  •  The NCCs will then submit their winners (max. 3 per country) to the European level in the end of November
  •  The European winner(s) will be chosen by a voting mechanism combining individual votes from the public onthe one side and votes from the NCCs on the other
  • The prizes on the European level will be the same as for the photo competition :

o First Prize is a cash voucher of €300 and a participation in one of our activities at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg or Budapest (Including travel, board and lodging and the participation in the programme)

o Second Prize – a participation in one of our activities at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg or Budapest. (Including travel, board and lodging and the participation in the programme)

o Third Prize – special Council of Europe Journalist sets.

o The Jury may also award prizes to 5 discretionary nominations

o Every participant will also receive an official Council of Europe Certificate and campaign T-shirt and
