Normand, are you ready to explore the world?

From April 16 to May 20, Normandie Attractivité is inviting Normans aged 18 to 35 to take part in the "Normands autour du Monde" competition. The 5 winners will set off on an adventure across 5 continents, from September 10 to 30, to meet the Normans of the world.

Whether they were born in Normandy, adopted it or have it at heart, in the region, in France or around the world, more than 2,000 of them have already chosen to become ambassadors for Normandy! Each in their own way, they promote the region and participate every day in the #NormandieRégionMonde movement. To mark this first step and continue the development of this network of ambassadors, Normandie Attractivité wanted to create a unifying event for young people.

Openness to the world, a spirit of conquest, boldness and solidarity: these four values guide this competition, which will enable five young people to set off in September to meet Normans living all over the world (one candidate per continent). Philippe Augier, President of Normandie Attractivité, who initiated the project, said: "Candidates will have the opportunity to identify Normans from around the world on the spot and to bring them together, particularly within clubs. The 5 young people will also share their adventures and encounters, "to help us discover new Normandy talents from all horizons, economic, cultural, scientific..." via social networks and a dedicated web platform: A community formed around the candidates will also be created in the region, "to expand the network of ambassadors and share our ambition to make Normandy a World Region".

How to get involved

Are you between 18 and 35 years old? You are from Normandy (main residence in Normandy) ? Do you like Normandy? Do you have an easy way of getting in touch with others? Do you speak English or other languages? You are resourceful and motivated? You are not afraid of social networks? From April 16 to May 20, apply online at

After a pre-selection process based on their applications, the selected candidates will be interviewed by the members of the jury (journalists, key players, institutions) at the end of May. The 5 winners will be announced on June 6.


Normandie Attractivité will take care of the entire organization of the winners' trip (transportation, accommodation and meal expenses, etc.). The winners will also be assisted in building their itinerary and identifying the Normans who will be part of their journey.
