28 weekly competitions
Great prizes for winners
Just follow the #ExperienceEurope WeChat account and you qualify to participate
What is the meaning of travel?
The sceneries you saw; the paths you wandered; the books you read; the wine you sipped; the people you loved. This will all become part of you.
Are you ready to experience Europe’s breath-taking natural scenery and historied cultural heritage? For its romance and passion to move you?
2018 is the EU-China Tourism Year. This year, the EU wants to send you on a deluxe two-person tour!
We will cover the costs for airplane tickets, hotel accommodations, and an experienced traveller to accompany you and guide you through a first-hand tour of Europe’s landscape, culture, and food.
From March to September 2018, the 28 Member States of the EU will hold weekly contests in turn.
Each weekly contest will select two winners: one from that week’s photography contest and one from that week’s cultural knowledge contest. The two winners will be awarded prizes provided by the Member States as well as a chance to win a lucky draw for the grand prize of travelling to Europe.
Thus, the chance of winning the Grand Prize by winning a single photography or cultural knowledge contest is 1/56!
Lucky draw chances can be accumulated, as you are entered into the lucky draw once for every photo or cultural knowledge competition which you win.
If you win two or more photography or cultural knowledge contests, the chance of winning the Grand Prize becomes 1/28 or less!
It seems you are one step closer to touring Europe!
Photo Contest Rules
Submit a photo according to requirements during the week of the Member State’s contest. The winner will be awarded a special prize from the Member State as well as a chance to win the grand prize of traveling to Europe.
Photos can be about the societies and cultures of EU Member States, or about the Member States’ beautiful landscapes, wildlife, and natural environment.
But the content of the photos is not limited to things within the Member States’ borders! Photos can also be about cultural experiences related to the Member State of the event week.
