The winner of the Discovery Award, and deservedly so, was Rimaldas Viksraitis who received a bouquet of flowers and a prize of 25,000 Euros. The Contemporary Book award went to JH Engstrom and Anders Peterson’s collaborative book From Back Home, which was another popular choice, judging by the response of the packed amphitheatre.

It means my memories can never be destroyed because they no longer end in themselves.” – Anders Petersen you can’t reo back home.
