Now that the deadline for VIDA 15.0 has passed, we would like to offer enormous thanks to all those who have been involved in the project for their interest and participation. The times of crisis that we are suffering worldwide were no obstacle for the participants, who responded similarly to previous years.
This year VIDA has maintained its level of participation. We received a total of 224 projects: 138 in the Finalised Projects category and 86 in the Incentives for Production category. This represented an increase in the number of projects in the first category and a slight decrease in the second.
In regard to the origins of the projects, this year’s entries come from the largest number of countries so far, a total of 39. The countries with the most projects are Spain, Mexico and the United States. But it is noteworthy that entries have come in from all over the world: Australia, Japan, Iran, Holland, Italy, Colombia, Brazil, Israel, Norway, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Peru, Venezuela, Slovenia, Germany, United Kingdom, France, Canada, India, Russia, Argentina, Sweden, Austria, Chile, Portugal, South Korea, Croatia, Poland, Romania, Finland, Greece, Guatemala, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine.
Over its 15 editions, the VIDA contest has grown in both participation and scope to become a reference in its field. We are confident that, with everyone’s help, this trend will continue and reach an increasingly wider public.
