The Theatre section awarded iconic director Alexandru Tocilescu for his two installments with Bulgakov’s Zoika’s House at the Comedy Theatre and Samuel Beckett’s “Endgame” at Metropolis. Winning in the plastic art category was painter Vladimir Zamfirescu. Pianist Luiza Borac was awarded for her music performances.
