Enter the 2014 Europass Viral Video Competition – Win a Trip to Europe!

Deadline: November 30, 2014

The 2014 Europass Viral Video Competition is organised by the National Europass Centres and funded by the European Commission. A viral video is one that becomes popular through the process of Internet sharing, typically through websites and email. Humour is often a characteristic of viral videos, but not a defining one.

The aim of this video competition is to create a short film (viral video) highlighting the benefits of Europass. You can choose any style: documentary, drama, comedy – just let your imagination run free. Any media can be used: illustration, animation, live action, anything you can think of.  The key to a successful video is that it is memorable and striking enough to make people want to share it to their friends.

All videos will be reviewed by the selection committee, which will assess their compliance with the recommendations, and decide to make them available online or not. All the videos approved shall be visible and available on the organizer’s website.
