Free MOVE Congress 2014 registration: Submit a photo for your chance to win!
The MOVE Congress 2014 organisers are giving you the chance to be rewarded for your creativity and win free registration for this year’s event in Rome from 22-25 October. All you have to do is send us a photograph that you think represents “sport for all”. Find out below how you can enter the first ever MOVE Congress Photo Contest!
Sport for all is a concept that has different shades. Is it club sports? Is it exercise that you organise yourself, like running or working out? Does it include walking to the shops, gardening or riding your bike to work? Organisations and other stakeholders interested in grassroots sport are still debating the meaning of sport for all and defining what it encompasses. What we know for sure is that people choose to be active in many different ways and in different places. We also know that action speaks louder than words, so we want you to show us what you think:
What does sport for all mean to you? Take a picture and send it to us by Friday 26 September 2014.
