Announcing: GMF’s Blog Competition on Transatlantic Cooperation
GMF is proud to partner with NATO to invite 300- to 500- word blog competition entries that explore in the words of NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, “what has the transatlantic relationship meant to you, and how can we preserve it and make it even stronger for future generations.” The winning entry will be selected based on three key criteria: relevance, breakthrough ideas, and unique visits/web traffic. Each will carry a maximum of 10 points. The author of the piece that scores the highest will receive a roundtrip flight and access to the 2015 Brussels Forum. The first, second, and third runners-up will receive a roundtrip flight and access to the 2015 Brussels Seminar on Global Security.
The competition is open through to the end of July, with winners announced at the beginning of September.
Participants may use social media to promote their entries for higher unique visits/web traffic.
Please note that GMF will fact check and edit all entries in line with its style guide.
To submit your entry, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter “Blog Competition” only in the subject line. Entries should also contain name, title, affiliation, and a telephone number.
GMF’s Transatlantic Dialogues Competition is made possible thanks to the generous support of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
Brussels Form is a high-level meeting of the most influential North American and European leaders that addresses pressing issues for both sides of the Atlantic. Its agenda reflects the growing diversity of issues at the core of the transatlantic relationship, as well as the expanding geographic reach of transatlantic cooperation. Friends and graduates of GMF’s leadership development programs may gain access to the Forum for a registration fee of $2,500. If you would like to receive a reminder when registrations open, please register your interest here.
The Brussels Seminar on Global Security will convene business, government, and civic leaders from both sides of the Atlantic for a two-day conference that will focus on key themes related to global security. The seminar will reveal how the transatlantic community has developed security measures to adapt to evolving threats around the globe, and will explore how peace and security can be achieved in the 21st century. The seminar is tentatively scheduled for April 2015. The registration fee will be $600, and will include meals and accommodation thanks to generous support of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
