#EUInMyRegion blogging competition: read the three winning blog posts
The winners of the #EUInMyRegion blogging competition are Janusz Mizerny (Poland), Clarissa Hirst (Sweden) and Andrea González González (Spain)
After combining the three Judges’ scores (see what they looked for) with figures from website traffic and social analytics, the results are in:
- Polish eco-blogger Janusz Mizerny came first with Biogas buses are the green solution for cities. This was the judges’ top pick and did reasonably well in terms of traffic.
The other two winners were close behind, with almost identical scores:
- Clarissa Hirst (Sweden): Playing with Russia in the Baltic Sea Sandpit: Challenges and Opportunities was also very popular with the Judges, and did well on social media.
- Andrea González González (Spain): her The Cabárceno Natural Park, one of the first actions financed with European funds in Cantabria! was one of the first entries published, and did particularly well in terms of both traffic and social media engagement.
As set out at the end of June, all three have now been invited to Brussels for the European Week of Regions and Cities (10 – 13 October), where they’ll join the media programme as accredited journalists.
They will post from the conference, with their posts translated and republished on BlogActiv.eu.
Finally, three Honourable Mentions came very close behind the three winners:
- Fabiana Zeppieri (Italy) for 7 things I learnt about Social Innovation (in Italy)
- Nelly Miteva (Bulgaria) for Village of Koshnitsa, Dyadova River and the spring of the Arda River
- Sarah Connors (UK) for GeoPolicy: 8 science-based projects improving regions in the EU
