OSHA European Photo Competition 2011.

The second European Union-European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (OSHA) photo competition challenges photography enthusiasts across Europe – both professional and amateur – to once more pick up their cameras and capture their image of safety and health in the workplace. This year the competition invites entrants to picture how risk prevention is viewed by people throughout the EU27 and beyond, with the chance to win a top prize of €3,000.

Aims
This pan-European photo competition is organised by EU-OSHA to promote awareness on healthy workplaces and risk prevention at work. The Agency’s mission is “to make Europe’s workplaces safer, healthier and more productive“.

The competition challenges everyone to capture their own image of safety and health at work, with a special focus on risk prevention.

Selection
The three best photographs are selected according to their creativity and originality, as well as universal European appeal.
