How to participate

Any EU citizen and citizens from wider Europe older than 16 (recommended minimum age) can participate in the competition. You need to submit your story either in written format (short essay style, up to 500 words) or a video of up to 3 minutes (can be anything from an interview-style recording of telling your experience to filming the e-Participation activity).

Your story needs to be clearly related to e-Participation and to using an e-Participation tool to solve a problem or achieve desired results in any topic. It has to be told in an interesting and engaging way. Additional points would be given for stories about e-Participation tools at EU level (see Tools).

You can submit your story before 31 of August using the online application form in English (also available in 11 national languages in Apply Now). All entries will be evaluated against the selection criteria and 12 winners will be selected and invited to share their experience with policy-makers in Brussels in December 2015.

The stories should be submitted in free format and cover at least the following points:

  • Why? What was your motivation?
  • Which e-Participation tool did you use?
  • Was it an individual issue or a common problem? How many people were involved/influenced?
  • What was the result? Was the impact/benefit of the action individual or wider?
  • Was it your first such experience?
