MiLaS – what is it all about, many people will ask. Easy: on 1 April our European language campaign language diversity will start the first Europe-wide online-language competition for youth and young adults, that will focus on linguistic diversity and multilingualism. The emphasis is put particularly on the regional and minority languages of Europe, which should become more attractive and improve their image.
Show us how beautiful your language(s) are! Show us in a relaxed, cool, funky or emotional way, using self-written poems, sketches or songs, what you are capable of and present your language(s).
Every participant can choose his or her own poetic style. All forms of modern literature and creative language are allowed: classic or modern lyrics and sound poetry, cabaret and comedy, or short stories. We prefer rhythmic performances that interact with the audience, however.
There are no limits, except for the length of course. You can upload a video of up to 3 minutes on our Facebook page and with the support of your friends, who can vote for you, you can win one of our great prizes.
From the 10 most popular videos, our jury composed of persons from all over Europe will select the five best contributions. The authors of these videos will receive an invitation for the award ceremony in Sønderborg, Denmark, on Europe Day, Friday 9 May 2014.
Therefore – don’t wait too long, be creative and show us, what you’re capable of. Because you can only win and make your own language famous!
