Up to a maximum of 25 participants will be chosen for the final.

The selection is divided in two steps:
First a jury comprised of representatives of YfEj 4.0 will select maximum 25 finalists among eligible entries. The judges will look for a creative, engaging and inspiring submission. The jury’s selection of the finalists will be based on the following criteria: relevance to the Competition theme, creativity expressed, aesthetic quality, and persuasiveness of the entry. Entries will be judged on content, captions and quality. The judges’ decision is final and binding and no correspondence will be entered into on its decision.

The selected videos/photos finalists will then be published in a public online gallery on My YfEj Moment Contest blog (www.YFEJmoment.eu) so that they may be voted by the general public. Voters will be asked to vote for their favorite entry by sharing the selected entry on social networks. For all photos/videos, the number of shares on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn or Instagram will be taken into account.

The 2 photos/videos which have received the most “share” will be selected alongside one other photo or video chosen by the jury among all photos/videos received.

All the selected videos/photos finalists will be posted on a specific gallery on the contest blog. The voters will express their preference for a photo or a video sharing it on social networks through the pages of this website.

The opening date of the Competition is 30th November 2016 and the closing date is 12th December 2016, 23:59 Central European Time. Any entry received before the opening date or after the closing date will not be included in the Competition.

Selected photos and videos will be posted on this site from the 20th of December 2016. Vote, by sharing on social networks, will be possible until the 16th of January 2017.

Each winner will receive a €500 flight voucher to travel across Europe as well as a one night trip to Rome, including travel and accommodation, between 29th – 31th January 2017.
