This summer I visit Europe - Europe culture close to you – Photo competition


This summer we are experiencing our territory and our way of traveling and holidays very differently. This can be an opportunity to get even closer to our European cultural heritage.

Until 23 August 2020, all the European citizens are invited to upload a photo, together with an explanatory text, sharing how they experience and enjoy Europe’s culture and heritage close to home this summer. This can be a visit to a local museum or heritage site – or a trip to another European country. The focus should be on authentic experiences, hidden gems and the local, regional, national or European aspects of tourism – and not on mass tourism or faraway destinations.

At the closing of the competition, three winners will be selected and will each receive a voucher for a cultural experience.

This contest is part of the #europeforculture / This summer I visit Europe - Europe Culture is close to you cultural promotion campaign promoted by the European Commission and carried out as an initiative of the countries adhering to the European Heritage Label.

Let's share with us your photo and your story about it! You will be an ambassador of our European Culture!

We promote this initiative because the Archaeological Area of Ostia antica is part of the sites awarded the European Heritage Label.
