COM³ is thrilled to announce it won the North Sea Photo Contest 2021, in the category Joining Up.
COM³ submitted a picture from Vejle, Denmark with the following subtitle: “Together despite distance: During the Covid-19 pandemic, COM³ helped local SMEs stay connected with their customers. With the support of COM³, companies showcased and promoted their products and services professionally using an online communication platform.”
Vejle is a town located in the southeast of Jutland. The predominant sectors of the local economy are food, manufacturing and tourism. COM³ Partners in Vejle Municipality aim to improve the capacity of local business to exploit digital and green innovation potentials. Due to changed market needs during the pandemic, Vejle decided to adapt its strategy and purchased a video equipment which can be used by SMEs for livestreaming and/or video production. First users have been the University College and local SMEs from the food sector.
The jury – North Sea Region National Contact Points – have reviewed all entries and here what they say about COM³ participation:
”The COM³ picture describes the spirit of the project itself beautifully, helping small businesses and people to survive the weathering storm that is the pandemic.”
“Connecting with external parties was a challenge in these times. This picture showcases in a nice way one of the possible alternatives that projects have sought during this period.”
