Ólafur Arnalds has revealed the winner of the Genero TV competition to make the ‘This Place Was A Shelter’ official video! The winning video was submitted by Ádám Bedzsula & Erik Kocsis from Hungary, and they will now receive the $4,000 prize.
Here’s how they described their video: “On the waves of life you can die in a million different ways. Anger, pain, losing something precious may make you sink slowly in the ocean of struggle. But is there a possibility of million rebirths? Well… if you go down to the abyss of yourself to let the heavy weights go away, then you could be able to find your way towards your new breath. These experiences throughout our life could reflect the bigger picture and may tell us if there is salvation after we pass away.”
Congratulations to all who took part. There were 198 brilliant submissions which were reviewed by Ólafur himself and as well as selecting the winner he also picked five of his favourite runners up.
