Collecting votes is exciting, but there are two special prizes as well, and these acknowledgements do not depend on votes.
This year, the “Personally” special award will be given to the author submitting an article in the most original and exciting way about a Hungarian wine trip where, in addition to the wine and gastronomy, other tourist attractions and related experiences also appear. The motto of the writing is “Personal experience”. Articles submitted in any of the three categories are in contest for the Personally special award. The winner of the award will receive a wine selection of 3 bottles.
Sánta Zoltán Emlékdíj (‘Zoltán Sánta Memorial Award’) will be given to someone, whose recent entry is outstanding and whose whole career achievement is exemplary.
The awards will be handled to the winners on 16 August at Hungarian Gettogether.
