umea2014logoUmeå, the largest city in Northern Sweden, has been named European Capital of Culture 2014 and is inviting artists from all over the world to take part in a brand new global art competition, Artists Caught by [Umeå]

Take the opportunity to explore and interpret life and culture in northern Sweden through PHOTO, FILM and DESIGN, in one of Europe’s biggest progressive art competitions this year. € 3000 for each of the three final winners are at stake!

You don´t have to be from Umeå or northern Sweden yourself, you don´t even have to have been there, all inspiration is available on this site and through our Social Media channels – use your imagination!

Marie-Louise Rönnmark, spokesperson for Umeå council’s Capital of Culture committee, is looking forward to the competition. “It’s going to be very exciting to see how Europe interprets Umeå and the northern regions. The way we are viewed by the rest of the world is important for our own self-image and inspires us to develop our part of the world”, she says.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for creative people who want to gain international exposure. Capital of Culture year is an event which attracts attention and Umeå’s encouragement of global creative collaboration is a clear indicator of the importance of bringing artists together to inspire each other”, says Demian Horst, Chairman of the Design Jury.
