The Faces2Hearts project is a worldwide blogging experience offering four young people a 5-month journey across three continents (Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Latin America). During the first half of 2018 they will undertake a 5-month journey of discovery visiting a range of EU-funded development projects and record their experiences, interactions and feelings.
The competition is for young people worldwide, between the age of twenty-one and thirty-one inclusive, skilled multimedia users (photography, video, social media, writing), free to travel for the first half of 2018, and holding an international passport valid until at least December 2018 .
They should be able to speak and write in English at an ‘upper intermediate’ level that corresponds to the Common European Framework of Languages (CEF) reference level B2. The language requirements vary according to the region they are applying and that region depends on their nationality.
Four selected winners will be invited to Brussels for training and briefing on the journey in late 2017.
They will each receive an equipment package and be supported by international development professionals on the ground during their journeys.
Each winner will travel and discover stories within his or her own region (West & Central Africa, Latin America and Asia-Pacific), except for the European blogger who will be travelling in Eastern & Southern Africa.
The project will culminate at the European Development Days 2018 (EDD2018) in Brussels, Belgium, in June, where the 4 winners will share their stories. Travel, accommodation and reasonable expenses for participation at EDD2018 will also be covered.
To apply they need to upload a short video (max. 1 minute) to YouTube, Vimeo or DailyMotion, showcasing their suitability for this adventure.
Deadline: 13 November 2017, 12:00 noon CET.
