European Vocational Skills Week: #CedefopPhotoAward 2017


The Cedefop photo competition this year is built around the collective experiences that learners go through while training in VET.

The European Commission is organising the 2nd European Vocational Skills Week from 20 to 24 November 2017, in order to showcase the numerous opportunities that Vocational Education and Training (VET) can provide for young people and adults to "discover their talents" and develop specific skills and knowledge for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

One of the activities allowing to showcase excellence in VET is the #CedefopPhotoAward, an international competition run by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) – a European Union agency.

Learners of all ages engaged in vocational training are invited to participate in the Cedefop photo story competition by producing a series of photographs, which will showcase their collective experience in the world of VET. Please note that different teams of learners can represent the same school/institution, as stated in the competition rules.

The deadline for submission is 15 July at 23.59 CET.

The prize for the award will be given at the closing event of the European Vocational Skills Week in Brussels on 24 November 2017.

For any further clarifications and all future reference with regard to the competition, please contact Cedefop at or visit the Cedefop website.
