To celebrate this year’s European Week Against Cancer (25-31 May), the Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL) launched a competition for young people to design an infographic focusing on the messages of the European Code Against Cancer.

The European Code Against Cancer gives us 12 ways to reduce our cancer risk and live healthier and more active lives. As part of ECL’s mission to spread the word about the Code, we are looking for ways to make people aware of its messages. That’s why we need your help to design cool and informative infographics!


All eligible entries will be published online, and the winner announced during the European Week Against Cancer!
