Nordic Council’s prizes 2020


The Nordic Council’s prizes

We celebrate the nominees from the Faroe Islands and from the rest of the Nordic countries

Welcome to an exciting evening where we laud the nominees for the Nordic Council’s prizes, meet the nominees from the Faroe Islands and watch the award show live from Reykjavik together.

Every year the Nordic Council awards five prizes in honour of Nordic literature, language, music, movies and innovative work towards a better environment. These awards are considered some of the most prestigious prizes to receive throughout the Nordic countries and is acknowledged by the international community as a very important accolade.

The Nordic House in the Faroe Islands would like to highlight the four Faroese nominees:

Janus Rasmussen – Nominated for The Nordic Council Music Prize

Jens-Kjeld Jensen – Nominated for The Nordic Council Environment Prize

Oddfríður Marni Rasmussen – Nominated for The Nordic Council Literature Prize

Rakel Helmsdal – Nominated for The Nordic Council Children and Young People’s Literature Prize


We invite you to join us this magical evening. You will get the opportunity to meet the artists (Janus Rasmussen will be attending digitally) and learn about their work and congratulate them on their extraordinary nomination. Afterwards, we will find our seats in the Great Hall and view the award show live, which will be displayed on the big screen.

The event is free, but requires participants to sign up
