The international jury had a hard task when they met in Zolder, Belgium, on June 19 to select the winners among the many creative projects. The thumping Balkan beats and edgy designs pushed boundaries and enthralled the judges. Pasa Mustafa, Head of Digital Studios, Endemol U.K. said it was obvious "a lot of effort had gone into the projects" and the jury had their work cut out for them with "the great range of very creative and outstanding work".
8 Video, 9 Photography, 13 Visual Arts, 11 Fashion and 6 Music projects faced the scrutiny of an international panel representing companies as diverse as RIDE snowboards, Endemol and Lipsy. The jury was joined by Chevrolet Europe President and Managing Director Wayne Brannon, who was intrigued by the young artists' interpretations of the Chevrolet brand. Leading the passionate debates he said: "The decisions were tough with so many exceptional projects."
The winners will be celebrated at the European Awards ceremony in Paris on September 29! More details will be communicated soon.
