In order to celebrate and promote Europe Day on the 9th of May, the European Foundation of Human Rights (EFHR) organized a poster competition. The subject of the works, which were created by using various artistic techniques, was Europe Day, the European Union, European values and diversity. The interest in the competition went above and beyond our expectations – we received 117 fantastic posters!
It has been really difficult, but we have finally chosen the winners! On the basis of the variety of entries we received, we decided to create two age categories:

EFHR would like to warmly thank all those who submitted their works as well as teachers who encouraged their students to participate, and supported them throughout the competition.
All of the posters are of a very high standard and we can honestly say that choosing the winners of the competition was a very challenging task. We would like to thank the Information Centre of the European Commission Representative in Warsaw and the Council of Europe, for supporting our competition with Europe-themed freebies, that were given to all the participants.
