Are you a student? Can you imagine travelling without your camera by side? No? Why don’t you share your experience with us?

Discover Europe is not any old photography contest. It’s so much more than just a contest. It’s not all about the quality of the photographs. Most of all, we would like to emphasise student's perception of Europe, its cultural diversity, spellbinding beauty and what is unique about it.

Discover Europe is a pan-European contest. It means more opportunities to savour new places, cultures and attitudes. As we all perceive reality from different points of view, the expression of a specific, individual vision is a paramount for us. No matter if you decide to show us the alluring beauty of your homeland or new observations from all around Europe, be creative and convincive. The jury will undoubtedly appreciate it.

Discover Europe 2016 is the 13th edition of the contest and the 13th opportunity to broaden your horizons. The best photos, depicting beauty of various countries are chosen annually from thousands of photographs taken by students from all over the continent.

Obraz może zawierać: co najmniej jedna osoba, niebo, koń i na zewnątrz

Discover Europe consists of two parts: local stages the central stage.

Local stages are organised in every voivodeship in Poland. In Poland, intercollegiate groups are responsible for organising Promotional Days, preparing exhibitions of received photos and qualifying the best photographs for the central stage. Pictures taken by european students will be assessed by professional jury. Best photos will qualify for the next stage.

During central stage, the jury consisting of five artists and photographers will bear the responsibility of choosing winning photographs out of those sent in during local stages.
