On February 6, the ULUPUH* awards ceremony was held at the National Museum of Modern Art. The director of the Museum Branko Franceschi and the president of ULUPUH dr. art. Ivana Bakal, opened the program with suitable words and congratulations by the Minister of Culture and Media of the Republic of Croatia, Ph.D. Nina Obuljen Koržinek who presented the prizes to the laureates. The greatest award for lifetime achievement went to costume designer, set designer and painter Ingrid Begović.
I received an award for a special contribution to the reputation of the Association and for the exhibition Escape Landscapes, which was held in four large museums in four cities and was visited by more than 1,500 visitors in 6 months. The exhibition aroused great interest in abstract photography, which until now was not a frequent occurrence on our contemporary artistic photography scene.
