Our free photography contest recommendation of the day!
Currently, there is a lot of debate about borders, both because of the extraordinary migratory movements which we are experiencing, and because of concerns about security and stability in and around the European Union. At the same time, the abolition of internal frontiers represents a key achievement of European integration with great social, cultural and economic benefits.
Yet, this creation of a border-free Europe has always been linked to the need to 'protect' the EU's external borders. What are borders? How do they affect our lives? What makes them 'real' or 'imaginary'? How are they changing? What does this mean for us as human beings and as citizens of our town, region, country or the EU?
Have your say on this very topical issue. Send us a photo, before 30 June (23.59, Brussels time - UTC+1) depicting your interpretation of a 'Europe without borders' to win great prizes including a trip to Brussels for two and photographic equipment worth up to € 2,000.
