Inter-GLAM is a European project, co-funded by the European Union’s DG Justice Programme "Drugs Policy Initiatives - Supporting initiatives in the field of drugs policy” (JUST-2019-AG-DRUGS). The project aims to collaborate with diverse stakeholders to elaborate on global perspectives and trends shaping addictions and drug markets, and will co-produce a strand of the 4th European Conference on addictive behaviours and dependencies (LxAddictions22, 23-25 November 2022).

Within the frame of the collaboration with LxAddictions22, Inter-GLAM is organising a video contest for audiovisual pieces relating to one of the main areas/ thematic tracks of the conference. A selection of videos competing for the prizes will be shown at the conference in the Inter-GLAM Cinema.

Two types of videos are encouraged for submission:

  • Category 1 : creatively showcasing an innovative scientific, technical, or civil society activity
  • Category 2 : to communicate and bring visibility to stories of impactful and insightful lived experience

  1. 6 February 2022: Deadline for submission of video abstracts.
  2. 28 February 2022: The authors of shortlisted abstracts will be informed and sent video submission guidelines to enter their videos in the competition.
