The EU is launching a new EU scheme for the European Heritage Label and invites you to vote among 3 proposed logos. (Deadline: 6 January 2013) Vote for your favourite new European Heritage Label logo, and you could win an exciting prize…
The European Commission wants to hear from you! Your choice counts.
What is the European Heritage Label?
The European Heritage Label highlights heritage sites that symbolise and celebrate the integration, ideals and history of the European Union. From monuments and archaeological landmarks, to places of remembrance and cultural landscapes, each site has played a significant role in helping to shape the common history of Europe and the building of the European Union (EU) – a history that binds your nation together with the other Member States.
Part of a rich and vibrant shared heritage, these diverse sites can be found all over Europe, both in your own country, and in those where you might one day choose to travel, work or live. Impressive, interesting, eye-opening, educational – they give you a precious insight into other European cultures and values.
These heritage sites are for all European citizens – and visiting them helps to keep our common history alive.
That’s why you’re best placed to vote!
Wanted – your vote for a new logo
The EU is launching a new EU scheme for the European Heritage Label.
Originally started in 2006 by several national governments, the Label is now being organised by the European Commission so that its potential can be maximised. It will be awarded in 2013, 2014, 2015 and then every two years to sites with successful bids on the basis of an assessment by a panel of 13 independent experts .
A new version of the Label means a new logo. The European Commission has already selected three possible versions from a number of proposals developed by an external creative agency – and now we’d like you to help choose a winner! Just cast your vote!
It takes just a few minutes, and you could even find yourself one of five recipients of a special prize.
Cast your vote
When choosing your favourite logo, don’t forget to keep in mind what the European Heritage Label stands for, as well as that it can be carried by single national sites, national thematic sites (several sites in one Member State focusing on a specific theme) or transnational sites (one site located on the territory of at least two Member States).
So make your choice now and you could be one of the five lucky winners who will win a trip to one of the sites selected for the Label in 2013!
- To be eligible to vote, you must be an EU resident.
- Voters must be aged 18 or over (so that, in the event of winning, they can travel unaccompanied).
- You can vote for only one logo and only once.
- Voting is open now and closes at midnight (CET) on 06 January 2013.
- Once all the votes are in, the European Commission will calculate which logo has received the most votes.
- Five voters will be selected at random from among those who chose the winning logo. These five will win a trip to a site of their choice to be selected from among the (maximum) 16 European Heritage Label sites that will be selected in 2013 and officially awarded in early 2014.
- The prize consists of one return trip for the selected voter only. No additional persons will be covered.
- Winning voters will be notified by email before 31 January 2013. They must choose the site they wish to visit by 28 February 2014. Trips must be taken between 1 March 2014 and 31 December 2014.
