Get ready for the North Sea Photo Contest

09 July 2021 - Published by Anne Sofie Forfang

Heads up: It's time to put your creative hat on, grab your camera, or hire a photographer. Prepare to join the North Sea Photo Contest 2021!

Following on from last year’s success, we encourage you to once again take this opportunity to up your game when it comes to visuals and capture your project in one image that says it all.

The contest will be open to all North Sea Region VB projects, including ongoing and completed projects. The winners will be announced at the North Sea Conference on 24 November.


This year’s categories are:

1. A better place
How does your project make the North Sea Region a better place? Show your impact in a photo! Once you start to consider the options, you will realise that there are plenty of ways to visualise your achievements. 

2. Together
Cooperation and the building of community is at the heart of Interreg. We are looking specifically for images that showcase your work with people outside of the project partnership, such as citizens that engage with your project or professionals participating in your training or matchmaking sessions. 

3. The EU factor
Have you gone the extra mile to make the EU support really visible, perhaps even in a striking or fun way? Then your photo fits perfectly in category 3. It is important that citizens are aware of the benefits of EU support, and we truly appreciate your efforts.

Missing some details?

The contest will open officially after the summer break, providing more detailed information. 

We will also announce the 2021 edition of the annual North Sea Video Contest in August. Watch this space for the next announcements!
