Living together

“Living together” is the theme of the 2015 edition of the PES Group’s photo competition, which gives the chance to emerging and confirmed talents from all over Europe to capture through their lens images encapsulating one of the founding values of the European Union, that is, United in Diversity.

All Europeans must be considered equal, regardless of their sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation. Equality and non-discrimination are fundamental principles which are enshrined in our European treaties and the EU’s Charter of Fundamental Rights, and they must not remain empty words but translate into everyday life, everywhere in the EU

At a moment when differences are exacerbated and fears stirred by some opportunist and populist movements throughout the EU and beyond, we, European Socialists and Progressives in the Committee of the Regions find it important to recall that living together remains one of the EU’s biggest assets and a cornerstone of democratic societies.

This is why we need your help! Capture your idea of “Living Together” with your camera – there is an inspiration cloud that can help you below – and try to win great prizes such as a trip to Brussels for two and photographic equipment worth up to € 2,000.
