Europass Viral Video Competition

Feeling creative? This is your chance!

The National Europass Centres are organizing a viral video competition to young people around Europe. The main prize is a travel voucher to the European city of your choice.

Objective of the competition

The aim of this video competition is to create a short film (viral video) highlighting the benefits of Europass.

A link to Europass can be obscure: the key to a successful video is that it is memorable and striking enough to make people want to share it to their friends: to become viral.

How can I participate?

Produce a short video promoting the benefits of the Europass initiative and fill in the competition’s application form.

Who can participate?

Any citizen over 18 years old residing in one of the participating countries.


Competition will be open from 01.09.2014 to 30.11.2014, 24:00 (GMT).

What makes a winning video?

A viral video is one that becomes popular through the process of Internet sharing, typically through websites and email. Humour is often a characteristic of viral videos, but not a defining one. A viral video is any video that's passed electronically, from person to person, regardless of its content.

You can choose any style: documentary, drama, comedy – let your imagination run free.

Any media can be used: illustration, animation, live action… Anything you can think of; we have collected some ideas for you in the "guidelines for participants", but they just for your inspiration.
