The European Greenways Association organizes the “European Greenways Photo Contest” in the framework of the European project Greenways Outdoor (co-founded by the Cosme programme of the European Union). The objective is to promote greenways as a suitable infrastructure for different groups to practise outdoor activities at any time of year.

The European Greenways and all the elements around them are the protagonists of this competition. Participating photos should show the infrastructure itself (viaducts, tunnels, old railway buildings, canal towpaths, etc.), or users, heritage and natural attractions of the environment, places and singular elements, and especially the practice of activities by different kinds of users (cyclists, hikers, sports, families, etc.).

There are 5 prizes for the best photos and a special prize for the picture with the best engagement on the social media networks:

The photos can be sent by email at or uploaded on social media networks @EuropeanGreenwaysAssociation – Facebook, or @GreenwaysEurope for Twitter and Instagram with the #EuropeanGreenways2016.

The international jury will be formed by professionals and specialists from the world of communication, photography, greenways and tourism.

The deadline for submission is the 12th of June 2016. The awards will be made public at the end of June 2016.
