Jørgen Brandt, FEP Board Member 2010-2012, FEP Press Officer & FEP President Elect, has joined the expert international jury panel for the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) Photo Competition 2011

EU-OSHA is the main EU reference point for occupational safety and health, and its pan-European Photo Competition aims to promote awareness on healthy workplaces and risk prevention at work.

The competition calls for entries on the theme of ‘safety and health in the workplace’, with a special focus on risk prevention, to show how employers and employees can work together to prevent occupational accidents and illnesses. All photographers are invited to submit their entries before 31 August 2011, via the website: www.osha-photocompetition.eu

The competition is open to all citizens in the European Union plus the three EEA (Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway) and the six candidate and potential candidate countries (Croatia, Turkey, Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM and Albania).
An international jury of professional photographers and health and safety experts will select the best entries, with a first prize of €3,000 to be awarded to the winner. Second and third placed entries will win €2,000 and €1,000 respectively. In addition a youth prize of €1,000 will also be awarded to the best entrant aged under-21.
