“My democracy needs…” PES Democracy & Society Network Photo competition

Post your picture and WIN a TRIP to VIENNA

The Summer is over and we are all full of energy to keep working for a more social and equal Europe. 

Following the electoral process of last May, the PES is very aware and concerned with citizens’ disengagement. For this reason we will be focusing on the enhancement of democracy as one of our main priorities. To stay in close contact with all of you, the PES has launched an Initiative “#MyDemocracyMatters”.

We would like to invite you all to participate in this initiative by sharing your views on how democracy needs to be strengthened and in which areas you notice a democratic deficit.

Express what democracy means to you in our photo and video contest accompanying this initiative. Post your picture or short video through our Facebook page (with the hashtag #MyDemocracyMatters included) and explain what democracy means to you.

Invite your friend to like your picture on our facebook. The photo that gets the most likes will win a trip to Vienna during our two-day PES Democracy Network conference in November (21-23).

The deadline for entries is Friday 7 November.


PRIZE DETAILS: the Photo contest winner will win a trip to Vienna during our two-day PES Democracy Network conference from 21 to 23 November 2014.
