Help LIFE celebrate its 20th anniversary!

The LIFE programme celebrates its 20th anniversary in May 2012. To mark this important milestone in the history of the EU's financial instrument for the environment, the LIFE unit invites you to take part in not one but two special competitions.

LIFE has generated 20 years' worth of fantastic photography from projects all over the EU and beyond. Millions of words have also been written about the thousands of excellent projects that LIFE has co-funded over the last two decades. In recognition of this fact and to mark the 20 years of the programme, the LIFE unit is organising a photo competition and a 20 words competition open to all LIFE projects past or present. The closing date for both competitions is 15 DECEMBER 2011.

Last but not least, to mark LIFE's 20th birthday, events will take place across Europe. If you are organising an event the LIFE unit would like to know about it. You can upload details on and later keep track of all events via the LIFE’s 20th anniversary calendar.

Twenty years of LIFE is truly something worth celebrating. With your help we can make May 2012 a month to remember!
