The prizes were presented by the President of Figurama Boris Jirka at the opening of Figurama16 in Pilsen on October 11, 2016, with the participation of Czech Television. Laureates took the financial prize in person, against the signature of the Figurama expense document. Teachers of the laureates were given a small diploma in a copy of the original.
Dear colleagues, our meetings are working and for you it is an opportunity to be in the debate about the quality of the work being evaluated. After a long period of existence, the Figurama project is no longer a statement “do it so,” but the “how they do” stage has come to pass. That is why the name of the teacher is mentioned in the laureate certificate next to the name of the school. The sponsors of the grant for the laureates also participated in the evaluation so that they could decide whether to provide the financial amount already this year, the thanks are:
Mr. Ing. Pavel Bürger, Bürger Transport Libice nad Cidlinou
Last year, Egon Schiele was awarded the prize for the first time
1. Milan Grezdo, FVU AU Banská Bystrica
2. Lukáš Jirsa, FDU LS ZČU in Pilsen

Without a financial bonus, the diplomas were handed over to school representatives at the Pilsen meeting.
