eSkills Week Project Passion competition is now launched

The European Commission has launched the Project Passion competition which is aimed to inspire young people to create exciting communications on a theme that is top of mind amongst all young graduates in Europe – how to win a job. The competition is part of the European eSkills Week 2012, and contributions can be made until 4 March.

The European eSkills Week Project Passion competition is now open to contributions until the 4 of March 2012. The Commission therefore invites communication, journalism and audio visual students to participate. The contributions should be communications campaigns based on the theme of the European e-Skills 2012 campaign – e-Skills: there is a job waiting for you.

The competition is held in the eSkills Week framework. European e-Skills Week 2012 highlights the continuing demand for skilled ICT users and professionals to drive a competitive and innovative Europe. This year’s campaign deliver an array of training events, conferences, competitions and activities across more than 30 European countries, culminating in a dedicated European e-Skills Week from 26 to the 30 March 2012. First time this week was celebrated, it was in 2010.

Winners will receive cash prizes and the offer of internships at leading global companies. They will also have an all-expenses paid trip to Copenhagen in Denmark for an awards ceremony on 30 March 2012.
