The People of Erasmus+ 2020 competition

Since 2014, Erasmus+ has benefited more than 200,000 people in the UK. To celebrate this incredible achievement, we are bringing back our competition – and we want to hear from you!

This year’s competition is all about you and your Erasmus+ experience. We want to capture the stories behind the people, showcasing the vibrant community that makes Erasmus+ what it is and what being part of the programme has meant for you. Tell us about the impact Erasmus+ has had on you, your organisation or your participants – perhaps it was an opportunity for you to gain confidence, learn new skills, inspire others, explore best practice, or maybe even change lives.

Enter our competition by submitting your short story and a selfie. The top ten entries will win one4all gift vouchers

Entrants will see their photos and videos featured on the Erasmus+ Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, website pages and other promotional materials.

  • Eight runner-up winners will receive a £30 one4all gift voucher

Who can enter?

Anyone in the UK who has participated in the Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020) or been involved in managing a project can enter. You should have taken part through a UK organisation, such as a school, university, college, adult education provider or youth group, between 2014 and 2020. You could be a student, project coordinator, apprentice, learner, parent, stakeholder or staff member. If you have been involved in an amazing Erasmus+ project or experience that has had a positive impact - then tell us more!

We’re looking for one entry per participant. Entrants must be over 18 years of age.

We can accept multiple entries from parents, guardians or teachers on behalf of different individual participants who are under the age of 18.

Does your selfie feature anyone else?

Perhaps your photo features a friend, colleague, teacher or someone else you have met through Erasmus+? If so, that’s great - but we need to make sure we respect their privacy.

If they are not easily identifiable (e.g. they are in the background and it’s blurry), that’s fine, there’s no need to do anything.

If their face is clearly shown, please ask them to fill out this consent form (164 KB). You will then need to collect the completed forms of all the individuals in the photo and email them to [email protected] before before 11am (UK time) on 19 June 2020. If this proof of consent is not provided, then unfortunately we cannot accept your entry.


Entries will be judged on their stories and must include a supporting ‘selfie’ photo. 

Winners will see their Erasmus+ words and photos featured on our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and website pages and perhaps even in our offices and on our promotional materials! Winners will be announced by Wednesday 8 July 2020.
