    Dear Tatjana and the rest of the festival team, I'm very glad my music video won the public's prize and that I saw a chance to come to your festival. I was received with so much hospitality and cordiality that I'm certainly trying to come again next year(-: Besides the festival day with the spectacle and the wonderful eco-fair I very much enjoyed the excursion to the kin domains. Thank you for this great experience!
