Do you have a passion for photography and journalism? Do you like getting to know people and discovering their stories? Do you want to find out how people relate to "Europe"? Then why not become a reporter for Faces of Europe!

Faces of Europe is a photoblog launched by the Your Vision for EUrope project, a new project by our partners AEGEE-Europe. Inspired by the famous Humans of New York, the photoblog aims at making Europe more personal and exploring the human diversity of our continent. The organisers want to collect and spread the faces and voices of people from different social, cultural and national backgrounds and to find out what "Europe" means to them.

Want to become a reporter? Any young person living in Europe is welcome to apply. The application process consists of two steps:

  1. Fill out the application form.
  2. Send a mail with one or two photoblog entries to yourvisionforeurope [@] aegee.org (the first is required, the second is optional), with the title "Faces of Europe – [your full name]".  Every photoblog should consist of:
  • A portrait picture of a person. The photo should not be a selfie, should be in high resolution and should have an artistic quality.
  • A short text in English (max. 200 words) which should reflect some kind of link to Europe (e.g. what does "Europe" mean to the person in question?).

You can get inspired by visiting the website or the Facebook page of Humans of New York.

If you are selected, you will be asked to send in two photoblog entries per month. You will become part of a diverse team of young photobloggers and will be supported by a coordinator from the Your Vision for EUrope Team.

Deadline for submitting applications: 30 November 2015

Please contact AEGEE at yourvisionforeurope [@] aegee.org if you have any questions.

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
