above and make sure you submit the application form. Please note we cannot take any responsibility for misspelled URLs so please ensure you have reviewed your entry before submission.
What are the JUDGING criteria?
Please note, the Awards judging panel will be assessing the quality of your entry and not the quality of your EU-funded project.
Does the entry demonstrate the value of the EU dimension of the project, and the opportunities that it being an EU project provided? For example, the value and opportunities could come from partnership with other countries, cross European exchange and learning, or the possibility to reach a wider audience and make a greater impact.
Does the entry communicate the difference the the project made to the people, communities and organizations involved? Entries should focus on impact rather than project plans or processes. It's not about how you delivered your project, it's about why, and the difference that it made.
Is it clear what this project is about and what it achieved? Could someone with no experience of EU funded programmes understand it? Avoid jargon, excessive text, or superfluous information. It's not about communicating everything about your project, focus on the important points.
You are encouraged to find interesting or creative ways to tell your EU story! Try to make your video engaging and visually interesting.KEY DATES
