Katarina Milošević is the winner of the public photo contest organized by the European Integration Office on the occasion of the European Cooperation Day. The campaign entitled “Street Art without Borders”, within which the contest was announced, was launched by SEIO on the occasion of the European Cooperation Day and marking 25 years since the establishment of the European Territorial Cooperation Programme.
The contest theme was taking photos of street art (graffiti, murals, street dancers and musicians, circus performers, pantomime performers, fakirs etc.) in different Serbian cities, or in some of the neighboring countries included in Cross-border Cooperation programmes (Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia).
Although more than 220 photos arrived, technical criteria specified in the contest were met by 135 photos and the best 30 were selected among them by the followers of the European Integration Office’s Facebook page, who voted for their favourites. Among the 30 photos selected, the best photo was chosen by the contest jury headed by Dragan Kujundžić, a photographer, and by the representatives of the European Integration Office and the EU Delegation to the Republic of Serbia as members of the jury. In the opinion of the expert jury, the winning photo responded in the best way by its colouring and dynamics to the contest theme – street art without borders.
The winning photo, along with nine of those which, according to the jury evaluation, responded best to the theme, will be on display in the Cultural Centre in Negotin accompanying the event of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra’s concert during Mokranjac Days, financially supported by the EU Delegation to the Republic of Serbia.
The European Cooperation Day celebrates the achievements of the territorial cooperation through local events organized in more than 40 countries throughout Europe. The European Territorial Cooperation is the EU instrument that connects people of neighboring countries in order to overcome common barriers that one country alone could not easily resolve. By joining knowledge and resources, the European Territorial Cooperation helps improve the environment, transportation, health services, culture, education and many other important fields of life.
