We are very happy with the broad repercussions of the short video competition about women composers and stereotypes about creative capabilities of women Musique est une femme. The submitted films are very inspiring. Some of the participants focused on a chosen female composer. We received nice videos about Tekla Bądarzewska, Amy Beach, Hildegarde Von Bingen, Rebecca Clarke, Mme Poldovsky , Otilie Suková… Some of them focused on one specific composition which impressed them, some took a broader context to show the position of female composers in earlier centuries. Each of their statements is very precious and important. Since the videos are so divers, the jury had a really difficult task to assign the prizes. All of the submissions deserve them in one or another way. Here are the results of the jury voting.
- the first prize 550 € – Tim Van Beveren/ Germany https://youtu.be/9_0rht4t9Ug
- the second prize 450 € – Sina Kloke/ Germany https://youtu.be/GhQ5YGmFmhQ
- the third prize 350 € – Mateusz Baran/ Poland https://youtu.be/YAyunNCwPBo
The public prize 650 € selected in the online voting goes to Foivos Avdeliodis/ Greece https://youtu.be/V_vvN0Km5fg
