Oh, poor L’Antiga! Every year they make such a great effort, but with the monstrosity of Nou Campanar looming just blocks away, they always fail to impress the judges.

I don’t know. I liked their monument this year. “The Hour of Truth” featured an old man (Father Time?) keeping watch over a number of ecological disasters. Uncle Sam & Obama stood on the top of a drowning Statue of Liberty, while the waters rise; a polar bear clings to a last bit of ice; recycling and deforestation pop up, and so on.

But 12th place was the best L’Antiga could manage… same as last year. At least they avoided the dreaded “sin premio” designation!
