GRAND PRIX sponsored by Paweł Adamowicz, the Mayor of the City of Gdańsk – 10.000 PLN
Sara Gackowska – Międzychód, Poland
Jurors about work:  A minimalistic combination of two very different materials. Their collision creates an unequivocal ring both timeless and contemporary. The colour yellow and the non-preciousness speak of an obvious joy in a way extended by the dynamic shape of the amber.

sponsored by the International Amber Association – 2 kg of amber
Emilia Kohut – Gdynia, Poland
Jurors about work: An interesting development of the concept of the ring. The Jury appreciated the use of amber as a specific tactile agent. Therefore, it reflects the pleasure aspect of enjoyment.

1 kg of silver
Piotr Tołkin – Gdynia, Poland
Jurors about work: Yet another shift of perspective. The entry’s playfulness brings back the innocent child in each of us.
