About the Honorary Otto
Each year at Fastaval an honorary award is given to a person or group who have done extraordinary work for Fastaval. The Honorary Otto is a token of gratitude and love from Fastaval and Alea (the organization behind Fastaval) to those who through many years have helped innovate, maintain, and developed Fastaval and the surrounding landscape to where it is today.
Who Awards the Honorary Otto?
The Honorary Otto is Aleas award and is given by a jury consisting of a chair-person and four-five jury members. It is a tradition that the previous years winner both selects the new jury and leads it the following year. To secure the jury a wide selection of the entire environment surrounding Fastaval, you can nominate persons and groups you feel deserve an extraordinary clap on the back. We receive nominations through an online form, which will be shared both on the websites and Fastavals social media platforms in the months up to Fastaval. Nominations are used as inspirations and guidelines, but the final call is up to the jury of the Honorary Otto.
