How to enter

  1. Make a video!
    Tell us your story on an economic topic related to the European Central Bank’s activities. It should be presented in an engaging and a simple way, suitable for a young audience that does not necessarily have any previous knowledge of the topic.
    Videos can be in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish. They should be in horizontal format and should last no more than 2 minutes and 20 seconds. You must also submit the script of the video (maximum 1,500 words).
    Trouble choosing a topic? Here are some ideas:
    • Why a single currency for Europe?
    • Why not a world currency?
    • Does the value of the euro against the dollar matter?
    • Why is too much debt a problem? Is the problem public debt or private debt?
    • Why is high inflation a problem?
    • Should troubled banks be given public money?
    • What will money look like in the future?
    • Can monetary policy reduce social inequalities?
    • Should workers be more mobile in the euro area?
  2. Register on the competition website and submit your video by 24 September 2017!

Good luck!
