Discover Europe is a Paneuropean Photo Contest for Students organised by Erasmus Student Network. In 2013 our polish project took a second place in European Charlemagne Youth Prize organised by European Parliament. Former EP President Hans-Gert Pöttering said:
"With 'Discover Europe' you have managed to focus youthful creativity and imagination on our united Europe. You recognise the European Union as our home and show that, in the midst of diversity, it is our values that unite us. "
The main aim of the competition is to show the beauty of Europe, its traditions, customs, citizens and to discover unknown places from Lisbon to Helsinki. Jury selects the best photos, submitted by the students from all over Europe.
