The jury also valued the creativity and originality in the illumination of the winning store.
The second prize, worth 3000 Euros, went to the 'Fusión Óptica' composition located on Calle Cruz, for its adaptation to wine of the settings that were proposed, "Art", "Leisure" and "Science" and for appropriately reflecting these settings, with an excellent composition of color and creativity.
Likewise to be highlighted was the originality of the showcase presented by José Javier Hernández Baptista, located on Calle Calatrava, winning the third prize, which was worth 2000 Euros. As the final touch, the jury decided to grant the three consolation prizes, worth 1000 Euros each, to Marionetas, Duende and Deportes Cronos.
The jury was formed by Paloma Salas (Publicidad Salas), representative of CRDIseño; the photographer Pepe Galanes and Fenavin's press representative, Sandra Ruiz.
Following the award ceremony, Fenavin's President encouraged all those present to continue participating in upcoming editions of the trade fair, underscoring that these initiatives "make us all feel like participants in a project that promotes the city, province and region."
Nemesio de Lara added that this contest serves to prove to all those coming in from abroad, that Fenavin is not just limited to the trade fair grounds, but that it involves the entire city and province, highlighting the indirect business that this wine event is generating for the city's hotels, restaurants and stores.
