The jury said in their deliberation: “This year’s recipient of the Stockholm Visionary Award 2021 is a Nordic visionary who manages to portray modern times with crystal clear precision and insight. He is the new generation’s cross-genre voice and impressively depicts close relationships in a relatable manner.”
