Thirteen ports up for ESPO award
Thirteen ports are in the running for the ESPO Award 2017 which this year will be awarded for ‘Art and cultural involvement of the port.’
The award will go to the port, that in the judges’ opinion, best succeeds in societal integration of the port with the city or wider community in which it’s located, through involvement in art or culture.
ESPO said it has received 13 submissions for the ninth edition of the ESPO Award, which was created back in 2009 to promote the efforts made by European ports to enhance the city-port relations.
Judging will be undertaken by an independent jury of international experts, under the Chairmanship of Pat Cox, former President of the European Parliament and TEN-T coordinator.
The winner will be announced at the ESPO award ceremony and dinner taking place on 8 November in Brussels.
