Which of Umeå’s creators are your favorites?
Nominations can now be submitted for the 2014 Umeå Creator Prize (Umeå skaparpris), which recognises the talents of local creative people. The prize will be awarded on 16 January 2015 to individuals who have contributed something special during 2014 in the categories Image of the Year, Animation of the Year, Design of the Year, Text of the Year, Sound of the Year and Creator of the Year.
Nominees must live and be active in and around Umeå, but do not need to have been born or raised here. They will be assessed based on what they have created during the past year according to the criteria creativity, execution and effect, not necessarily financial success or level of exposure. The Creator of the Year category is dedicated to people who make things happen; organisers, producers, helpers and enthusiasts.
The award ceremony will focus on curiosity, with lectures and discussions to be held on creating. The event will be held in the Sliperiet incubator at Umeå Arts Campus and is free and open to the public. All the jury needs now are nominations. Submit yours before 28 November!
2014 is the third year in a row the Umeå Creator Prize has been awarded. Its purpose is to shine the spotlight on and encourage creative people, businesses and organisations in Umeå and to bring different creators together to inspire one another.
