Thanks to the recommandations of the European panel in charge of monitoring the cities Marseille (France) et Košice (Slovaquia), both selected as the 2013 European capitals of culture, these cities may be awarded Melina Mercouri prize. Awarded by the Commission in recognition of the quality of the capital’s preparations, this prize represents €1,5 euros. 



As with all cities which have held the title of European Capital of Culture, Marseille and Košice have been assessed by a monitoring and advisory panel which ensures that their programme meets the criteria for the title and respects the pledges made by the cities before they were officially designated.

The cultural programme for the year must have a strong European dimension, reflected in the themes chosen and through the involvement of artists and cultural operators from different countries. The cities must also ensure that the event is attractive for the public and that it achieves a lasting impact by contributing to the long-term cultural and social development of the city.

The second and final monitoring meeting for the 2013 Capitals took place in Brussels at the end of April. In its report, published today, the panel commends the cities for their preparations and states that the Commission should award both the Melina Mercouri Prize, which is named after the former Greek Culture Minister who inspired the launch of the European Capital of Culture initiative in 1985.

Background

The European Capital of Culture is an excellent opportunity for the cities to change their image, to put themselves on the global map, attract more tourists, and to re-think their development through culture for the benefit of their residents. The title has a long-term impact, not only on culture but also in social and economic terms, both for the city and for the surrounding region. XXFollowing Marseille and Košice in 2013, the future European Capitals of Culture will be Umeå (Sweden) and Riga (Latvia) in 2014, Mons (Belgium) and Plzeň (Czech Republic) in 2015, and Donostia-San Sebastian (Spain) and Wroclaw (Poland) in 2016.
