This photographic contest is promoted within the framework of the MORE project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, which brings together eight Partners from six countries (Belgium, Italy, Romania, Greece, Spain and Poland). The project aims to improve the access to and the quality of training opportunities and qualifications of EU rural women through the establishment of local “Rural Women Hubs” (RWHs) in 7 rural territories across Europe.

Each Rural Women Hub launches a photo contest with the aim to portray women’s roles/businesses/activities in rural areas and prove the importance of the multifunctional role of women. According to the EU Parliament, the latter is essential to save rural areas in Europe. In today's society, women assume a "multifunctional role" in the multi-faced context of their families (i.e. child and elderly care) and social and labour ties. This multiplicity of roles contributes significantly to the improvement of their families' quality of life, as well as rural socio-economic development, civic engagement, and ways of rethinking the territorial contexts.

Participants of the contest will be invited to submit their photos according to the rules described hereafter. Received photos will be published on the MORE Platform , the MORE dedicated social media channels and the partners’ communication channels. The winner at consortium level will be awarded with great visibility across Europe. She/he will present her/his own work in person during a dedicated event, will be engaged in a short video pill and will have a dedicated space within the MORE Platform with the possibility of publishing other works and curriculum experiences (see “Prizes” section)
