Young Creative Talent Award 2016 goes to Limbo Citizen

This year’s Young Creative Talent Award was given to Lillian Dam Bracia and Pien den Hollander’s project ‘Limbo Citizen‘ – so decided the jury of four representatives from academia, arts & film, municipality and NGO sector. The Award is worth €1500, while the other two short-listed teams – ‘Paper Paradise’ by Floor de Bie and Eva van Roekel and ‘Reality 3.0’ by Omar Daou and Anna Ies Willems – received Premiere Prizes worth €500 each. ‘Limbo Citizen’ was also the favourite project of online voters, gaining almost 200 votes, and thus received an additional ‘Audience Favourite’ Award worth an extra €500.

Three teams whose stories were presented at the premiere. From left to right: Lillian dam Bracia & Pien den Hollander (Limbo Citizen project), Omar Daou & Anna Ies Willems (Reality 3.0), Floor de Bie (Paper Paradise - her team mate Eva van Roekel not present)

The teams were judged based on 5 criteria:

  • Rate and development of the project since the Pitch in December, and future perspectives;
  • Potential benefit of the project for career development of team members
  • Presentation of the topic
  • Artistic value and extent of interactivity
  • Relevance of the topic and how it is showcased

The jury consisted of four distinguished members: Prof. Frank Kessler (director of the Institute of Cultural Inquiry), Marlou Rutten (head of the programming at the Dutch Film Festival), Hans Goedkoop (Municipality of Utrecht) and Giovani Campbell (advisor at the Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie).

All projects will also be presented to the public at different times within the next months, so stay tuned for news!
