It was hard for the jury members to decide the winners because all the participants’ works are beautiful and amazing in the child’s infinite fantasy. But like in any contest the number of the prizes is limited while the jury wanted to mark absolutely all the children who participated in the project. Therefore, the organizers awarded commendations and memorable gifts to each of them.
The culmination of the project was the official ceremony of awarding the winners which took place within the frames of celebration of the Child Protection Day in Gorky’s Park where the winners and participants received memorable gifts from the organizers of the contest.
