The requirement is differentiated by Thematic Area and can be summarised as follows:

The works eligible for the award must follow the themes in art.2 and have, as of March 14, 2022, the following requirements:

Thematic area A - Programming, planning and management initiatives

  • the management initiatives must have been implemented (i.e. at least two annual statements of account filed, if required).

Thematic area B - Signs in the landscape

  • the project/work must be completed (in the case of complex projects, at least a significant part of the project must be completed, autonomously usable and interacting with the context)

Thematic area C - Culture, education and participation

the initiatives must be completed and documented also in terms of the results that can be seen by the users

4. How must the time requirement be met for particularly complex interventions in Thematic Area B?

For measures in "Thematic Area B - Signs in the Landscape" when they relate to a complex and articulated project, it is necessary that at least one significant and functionally independent part has been completed.

No. The procedure for registering and sending documents and attachments is fully automated and is only done online.

The following documents are required

9. Can documents other than the mandatory ones be attached? In what format should they be attached?

The only optional attachment is the video that can accompany the summary report, lasting no longer than 5 minutes, preferably indicated with a link and independently published online. Alternatively, videos can be attached directly, but not exceeding 15 MB in size. In addition to the video, no further material other than that indicated in art. 8 of the Call may be attached.
