The winner of the prize will each year be announced during the Session of the Nordic Council. The prize is awarded to an artistically valuable, Nordic- produced full-length feature film with cinema distribution. The film must have had its première between 1 July and 30 June. The DKK 350,000 prize is shared equally by the scriptwriter, director and producer, underlining that film as an art form is the result of close collaboration between these three main contributors.

Criteria for nomination  
The nominated films must have deep roots in Nordic culture, be of high artistic quality, distinguish themselves with artistic originality, and combine and elevate film’s myriad elements into a compelling and holistic work of art.

National and Nordic jury
