Would you like to tackle present European challenges from a personal and individual perspective? Then become a reporter for Faces of Europe!

Faces of Europe is an online photoblog launched by Your Vision for EUrope, an AEGEE-Europe project. The first edition of Faces of Europe was already a success. Thanks to a committed team of 16 reporters from seven different nationalities, we published stories of many different Europeans on our Facebook page, collecting more than 2.500 likes and many messages of support and positive feedbacks from our readers.

Now, you can also read the photoblogs of Faces of Europe on our brand new website.

Soon we will be ready to launch the second edition of Faces of Europe, and we are determined to make it even better than the first one! Do you want to be part of it? Every young person living in Europe or originally from Europe is welcome to apply as a reporter.

The application process consists of two steps:
1. Fill out the application form.
2. Send an email with one photoblog to facesofeurope@aegee.org

Every photoblog should consist of:
a. A portrait picture of a person. Please make sure that the person portrayed has given his/her consent to the publication of his/her photo (oral consent is sufficient, except in the case of minors).
b. A short text in English (max. 200 words). The text should be a personal story told by the person portrayed (written from the first person perspective).

The deadline to complete the whole application (step 1 and 2) is the 25th of November 2016, midnight C.E.T.
