They were confronted with a classic projection situation in the Corpus Christy Chapel and with the gallery situation, since they were presented during the whole festival in the Attic Gallery at Konvikt as an installation, thus subjected to the constant judgement of the international jury as well as the festival audience. The audience could vote for their favourite by inserting the completed ballot paper into the present ballot box.
International jury consisting of Takeshi Murata, András Cséfalvay and Ondřej Jakubec has pronounced as follows:
Concerning the programme, Saturday is even more busy than Friday. The participants of Lunchmeat Visuals Workshopu keep on following the procedures leading to animation and visualisation of their own creative ideas.
Parents and their children have an opportunity to attend the presentation of Kuba and Lou Sanitrák's animated project Lesokraj the Story.
