On 30.9, the City of Tampere and Music x Media handed out a special award for a reformer of creative economy. This marks the first time the LUO(V)UUS award is given as a recognition for creative endeavors. The award will be given out annually to an operator, company or community within creative economy, or to a person or for an act that has contributed to the development of creative economy and the dialogue between creative industries.

– Troll Visual Effects is a great example of a Tampere-based company operating in the creative industry that has been able to grow its business, creating new jobs and visibility for the industry as well as building excellent international networks, says Anna-Kaisa Heinämäki, Competitiveness Director at the City of Tampere..

– By developing its operations in a determined manner and by creating networks, Troll Visual Effects has progressed from a small player to an international, global operator that is currently in continuous negotiations with major international players, including Netflix, HBO and Amazon, as well as major film studios and producers. We need ambitious entrepreneurs like it who boldly reform the practices in creative industries and hopefully encourage other operators to grow and develop their activities, and also increase the importance of creative entrepreneurship in the society, says the CEO of Music x Media Finland, Kaisa Rönkkö.

Troll Visual Effects received the LUO(V)UUS award at the Industry Awards Gala on 30.9.
