The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award:

"The stories of our time make the strongest impressions when they, like the fairytales of the past, gives room for reflection and recognition. This is such a story. In the way the art of the moment is stretched in time and challenged by space, one can barely see how the smallest analogue or technological detail could have been let go of.

With a miniature world at the core, the winner allows tiny parts to grow into a decentralised monumental work surrounding memories of and form our own time; painful, beautiful and irrevocable. And for every light diode and every musical anchor, the spectator grows increasingly connected to the piece's irreversible vision.

With the precise fingerspitzengefühl of a musical conductor, the director lets lighting and sound designers, musicians, photographers, visual artists and technicians carry a documentary reconstruction with theatre at its fundament, a deepgoing art work about ourselves at a given time: July 22, 2011."
