We are delighted to introduce you to the Year of the Roses 2021 great online Video Exhibition with the best 60 pictures. A big thank you to all those who participated in this wellbeing initiative!  All roses’ images and their stories submitted have been showcased on our respective social media from April to 30 September.  After submissions closed, the judges selected 60 of the best images received by ACT UK and OKAY! Italy which are categorized by name and country.  

So, enjoy the final video of the 60 best photos and let us be moved by the voice of Jeanie Burton, who created, composed and performed the wonderful soundtrack of this initiative. ​The video will also be presented at Beeston Pilot Light Night, Nottingham, on Saturday 29th January 2022, 16.30 hrs – 22.00 hrs, in the land of Robin Hood.

This video concludes our 2021 celebration of roses and what they mean to us.  Held during these difficult pandemic times, the initiative aimed to strengthen our spirits and encourage artistic and emotional expression – to celebrate nature and our place within it.  It has attracted beautiful creativity from different ages, cultures and nations.  For adults, it was an opportunity for them to release treasured memories of roses bringing family, friends and places closer together and for school students to create images that are innovative and meaningful. The rose is a sign of hope for the future.  Because after the thorns, we need the roses. Enjoy the experience this video exhibition brings you and feel free to Like and leave any comments.
