Capture the spirit of your summer trip and win a 2 week holiday courtesy of the European Travel Commission!

The Euroshorts 2014 Film Competition opens this week

Love the idea of documenting your summer trip? Well the ETC’s Euroshorts 2014 Film Competition has just been announced and you could win a two week holiday in Europe including flights and accommodation for two weeks if you make this year’s winning film!

Judges are looking for a short film that reflects your personal journey, highlighting three countries along the way. Short and sweet at no more than 5 minutes long, you need to include three European countries but the film can be shot in almost any style, capturing the sights, sounds, people and flavours of your European adventure.

Are you using your timeshare points towards a cruise between now and the end of September? This could be a perfect opportunity to savour three ports of call in three different countries – and show your friends and family where you’ve been!

To enter the competition, applicants should complete the online entry form and include a link to the short film complying with the following basic rules:

Who can enter?

Judges will be looking for filmmakers who submit:

A compelling short film; a film which has energy and passion; a film which has an authentic voice;

a film which inspires us to explore Europe; a film which is enjoyable and fun; a film which creates an emotional or humorous response; an idea which will work across the world; and of course a film which makes us want to travel.
