Yesterday 24 May, Katarina Nordmark, Värmland County Administrative Board and Stefan Barkman, Region Värmland received two awards on the behalf of the CUPIDO project at the annual North Sea Conference in Bruges, Belgium. One for the best teaser video and one for the best photo in the category “a Better Place”.

Winner Category 1 Photo – A Better Placeundefined

CUPIDO develops the cultural and cultural heritage sectors in rural areas. The winning picture shows how the SMEs in Middelburg, Zeeland (the Netherlands) used creativity to combat heat stress. The colourful umbrellas created publicity and attracted new visitors.

The judges said:

”Not only does this capture the ethos of the theme (the street looks like it would be lovely to walk down or sit out in), but I love the composition. The shop fronts provide a perfect frame for the tower at the end of the street.” "The image is very much place-oriented, with a visible positive change as result of project activities."

Winner Category - Best Teaser Video

The facade show "Light Without Borders", which was arranged in Rottneros park in Sunne, September 4, was the winner of the Teaser category in the video competition North Sea Video Contest 2021.

- It is fantastic that Rottneros park and Sunne get this attention in Europe through the video award. It gives many more people the chance to discover the park, which has been one of the purposes of the entire project for Sunne, says Åsa Gertling, Sunne municipality's project manager in CUPIDO.
