The Interreg Slam 2022 contest is now open!

What is the Interreg Slam?
The Interreg Slam is a double competition where the best stories of projects compete to:
- Win the award of the "best social media video" in September
- Win a trip to Brussels to show their story on stage in front of politicians, professionals of EU funding and policymakers.

This year, the theme is "Youth".  Any Interreg project connected to this theme can enter the competition. The jury, composed of members of the European Commission, Interact, Interreg, and independent experts, will select the six best applications for the competition. The six winners:
- Win a video production by the agency Old-Continent, reputed for its work on the EUinmyRegion campaign. This video enters the "social media competition" in September.
- Enter a coaching programme to prepare their performance on stage – a programme that lasts from June to October 2022, with a summer break.
-  Get to perform their project story on stage in October in Brussels during the Interreg Annual Event, in front of policymakers, politicians and Interreg professionals. All their travel fees and accommodation are covered for up to 3 participants per project.
The winners will also embark on a three-month training and coaching programme to create a powerful performance on stage that will make their story resonate with the whole community. The six winners have 6 minutes each to show their project on stage during the Interreg Annual Event in October.
