  • Katleen Brusselmans

    Due to personal reasons (explained well in advance to the festival team) I could not attend the announcement of the winners, but the organisers contacted me that evening to tell me I won. I was not expecting this at all and was very happy with the text message I received.
    The prize money was wired almost immediately to my bank account and the beautiful award I went to fetch a few weeks later is now proudly showing off in my office. Thanks to the whole team. Keep up the good work!
