With Covid-19 taking over the world and a lot of countries in lockdown 2020 has been a challenging year for all of us – but it also is one major historical moment we are all experiencing as a collective, be it in Russia, Germany, Nigeria or the US.

In three rounds we managed to capture TWELVE minutes of history, creativity, and connection with entries from all over the globe, showing us that we are all the same with our fears and hopes.
