The project presented by Mons was judged to correspond well to the objectives of the event based on the criteria set out in the European decision and the panel’s own recommendations. The panel noted that answers to the questionnaire had been better developed in comparison with the pre-selection stage, with - among other things - a special emphasis on the multicultural dimension, the participation of socially disadvantaged groups, and the environmental impact. For this reason, it is the panel’s unanimous recommendation that Mons be designated as European Capital of Culture 2015.
After the general final discussion of the panel, it was recommended that there were 6 cities which best met the objectives of the process and the criteria stipulated by the Decision and which had a real chance of success at the final selection stage. This conclusion was based on a combination of the written bidding document, the oral presentation, and the question and answer session between the city and the panel. It was agreed unanimously that Burgos, Donostia – San Sebastián, Córdoba, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Segovia and Zaragoza should be short-listed.
The project of Plzeň was judged to respond best to the objectives and criteria of the event (the "European dimension" and "city and citizens"). The Panel appreciated the relevance and creativity of the presentation, the capacity of the delegation to provide the panel with clear and focused responses to the questions, as well as its vision for its cultural strategy and its understanding of the European dimension inherent to the project.

If we want to answer the question why we have been engaged in the concept of a creative city for more than three years and why Pilsen so fervently wants to be awarded the title of European Capital of Culture, we must move away from purely local feelings and interests and we must delve deeper into what has shaped the Czech nation and its complex mentality, because without understanding and accepting the past we can hardly create a vision of the future. A vision which needs a more complicated, broader discussion about a European vision of culture and its reach into all areas of a life in society.
