Douzelage News

And the winner is?

In Oxelösund we introduced our very first Photo Contest with the theme: Oxelösund and Friendship.
We received entries from Agros, Altea, Bellagio, Bundoran, Marsaskala, Meerssen, Rovinj, Sherborne, Siret, Skofja Loka, Tryavna and Zvolen, 17 all together!
Morten Stricker (Press Photographer at Dagbladet Holstebro) and Annigje Kruytbosch (President Douzelage) had the difficult task to choose the winning photo. They unanimously chose for the one which you see in this news item. It shows true friendship and it is photographed from a fun angle. The photo is made by Bor Dolenc from Skofja Loka and is called: Flag Roundabout. Bor is a youth member.
Bor will be a happy man today: not only does he have the honor to be the winner of the very first Douzelage Photo Contest, he also receives € 150,-! Of course there were runners-up, but we decided not to have a 2nd or 3rd place. We do want to share a text of Evelin Koev (young delegate from Tryavna) with you:

“The roots of love.
In this black and white world we live, there’s the friendship and love of оur closest people, that gives us the colours we need.
The Douzelage family expands every year and it is spreading the colours in every country it touches. Only united, together and close to each other, we can be the change and make our world the colourful place it needs to be.”

Next year, new contest, new challenge, new chances!
