Crossing viewpoints: new deadline for Euromed Heritage photo competition

Photographers have been given an extra month to send in their entries for the photo competition organised by the EU-funded programme Euromed Heritage IV and by RehabiMed. The competition, “Crossing Viewpoints: Mediterranean cities as spaces of socialisation”, is open to all nationals of the EU and its nine southern Mediterranean partner countries.
The new deadline for submission of entries is 15 October 2011.
The competition aims to promote Euro-Mediterranean cultural heritage, increase public awareness of peoples’ national and regional cultural legacy, and encourage their appropriation of this rich heritage.
Students, amateurs, and young professionals, from the EU members and Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Authority, Syria and Tunisia, are encouraged to participate.
Euromed Heritage IV is an EU-funded project, with €17 million over four years, which contributes to the exchange of experiences on cultural heritage, creates networks and promotes cooperation. It focuses on the appropriation by the local populations of their cultural heritage and favours access to education and knowledge of cultural heritage. It supports a framework for the exchange of experiences, channels for the dissemination of best practices and new perspectives aimed at the development of an institutional cultural environment.
