Amanda Awards (Norwegian Oscars®)

The Amanda is an award given annually at the Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund, Norway, since 1985. The award is a sculpture by the Norwegian sculptor Kristian Kvakland, measuring 30 cm (12") and weighing 2.5 kg (5.5 lb). The name, and theme, of the sculpture comes from a legendary local woman from the 1920s. It is the main national film award in Norway.
