--the table of contestants: it contains the place each participant achieved and the code name under which the paper was submitted - so do come along to this short and festive end-of-the-semester gathering to find out who are the real persons under the code names! We will open the 2021 envelopes before your eyes to find out who wrote what, whom to congratulate.

On top of the small grants that the Institute will give out to the successful participants - thanks, IEAS, so much! - , all colleagues and students who invested time and effort into this noble contest will receive book tokens from Dr Zsófia Ruttkay and Eszter Ruttkay, daughters of Professor Kálmán Ruttkay, after whom the contest is named. They share with us the belief that good writing deserves attention and appreciate that we continue with the legacy of Professor Ruttkay - so they spared time and money to present you with the book tokens. Grateful thanks to both of them, especially in these difficult times!

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Gabriella Reuss
