Decent employment, which allows people to earn a living, to  participate in society, to develop their skills and to find satisfaction, is a fundamental need for everybody and for each society.

Today, jobs are changing fast, new kinds of work develop and traditional professions disappear. At the same time, globalisation, migration, new technologies and the economic crisis all affect jobs and the way we work in Europe.

The European Union provides opportunities for job creation, labour mobility and training, while setting standards for health and safety at work. However, unemployment, especially among young people, remains an enormous challenge.

How do you see jobs in today's Europe and what does Europe mean for jobs? Capture your job reality or your job aspirations in Europe with your camera, and try to win great prizes including a trip to Brussels for two and photographic equipment worth up to € 2,000. The competition closes on 30 June 2014.
