The winners of the hugely popular Åland 100 Knitting competition have now been selected, thank you so much to everyone who participated!

Prizes will also go to Ms. Yuko Hachiya, Ms. Mieko Toba and Ms. Yuka Suzuki, as well as an honorary prize to Ms. Kazumi Sunada with her lovely sweater for dogs. Congratulations!

The jury consisted of Ms. Tiina Björklund, Project Leader of Åland 100, Ms. Linda Permanto, Head of Marketing and Communication at Novita Oy, as well as Dr. Anna-Maria Wiljanen, Director of the Finnish Institute in Japan.
