UK: Falun Gong Won First Prize Again in Edinburgh's International Art Festival Parade

The annual Edinburgh International Art Festival Parade took place in Scotland’s capital on August 3rd. According to figures announced by the organisation committee, 150,000 spectators from all over the world watched the parade. More than 1,700 people in 99 groups participated in the event this year. The criteria used to choose the winners of the parade’s 3 prizes include expression, action, spectators’ feedback, the group’s role in society and so on. The committee evaluated all parade teams based on the above standards. After getting the first prize in the community category last year, Falun Gong once again won the first prize for 2003.

Falun Gong’s team was formed by Chinese waist drums, traditional dances and a float. It had a unique style among the many performance groups and was full of rich oriental culture, as well as friendliness, beauty and creativity. Many newspapers used pictures of Falun Gong practitioners’ performance as the headline when reporting on Edinburgh’s Art Festival. For example, The Scotsman put a picture of a Falun Gong practitioner performing The Lotus Dance on the front page. Falun Gong once again was spread in the Edinburgh Art Festival, and many people got to learn more about Dafa.
