Europe Prize: an extra week to submit your candidatures

The deadline for Mayors to submit candidatures for the Europe Prize – a series of awards sponsored by PACE which honour towns and cities for upholding the European ideal – has been extended by a week as a result of a technical problem with the online submission system.

The new deadline is Friday 22 January 2016, instead of the original deadline of 15 January.

The Prize, created by the Parliamentary Assembly in 1955, rewards municipalities for their active promotion of the European ideal, such as twinnings, European events and exchange visits.
