The Astillero City Council already has winners for the 2021 Costume Contest that this year the Consistory has celebrated telematically given the epidemiological situation due to the coronavirus.
‘Astillero’s Dream’, in a collective category, and Angelina Frias, a ten-year-old girl, individually, have won the first prizes of 300 euros in cash each, as reported in a statement by the Consistory.
In the collective category, the second prize went to Ana María Mayor with a family photo from another era. And individually in Daniela Romano, dressed in a colorful chameleon, and Álvaro Arana with a tribute to Star Wars, have won the second and third prize endowed with 200 and 100 euros in cash, respectively. Throughout this week, the City Council will contact all the winners to send them their prizes in the contest.
The deadline to present the contests ended last Thursday, February 18, and the next day the jury, made up of photographers Fermín Molino, Aurelio Sebares and Juan Carlos Casado and chaired by the Councilor for Celebrations, Cristina Laza, deliberated until arriving to a consensus to name the winners. All have agreed “on the good level and originality of the costumes.” The City Council thanked the jury and the participants for their commitment to this “so atypical” contest due to the health situation.
“Last year at this time there were hundreds of people who paraded through the streets to end up exhibiting their costumes and couplets in the pavilion of La Cantábrica”, recalled the Consistory, which hopes that in 2022 the face-to-face format can be recovered and returned to dress the streets of the municipality in color.
