“Cultures on my street” European Photo Competition
As Europe grows together in its diversity, the European Commission challenges YOU to capture your vision of intercultural dialogue and share it with the world in the competition “Cultures on my street”.
Inspiration for the theme could be found in the fields of education, religion, migration, science, culture, minority groups or youth. And remember, there are no borders to your imagination, so feel free to explore the possibility of retouching and editing your photos, or making photo collages and montages.

- The photo motif should capture your vision of intercultural dialogue. Go out to your neighborhood, walk through the streets of your town and catch that special moment when cultures meet. This might be people talking, learning, praying, laughing or simply being together.
- The photo should have a universal appeal for people all across the EU.
- The photos may be edited by the participant. This means that the presentation of the motif may be manipulated in colour or composition (montage, collage, retouching etc.) to differ from the original motif. Re-sharpening and correction of the tonal value is also permitted.
