but it is made of cardboard ;-)
it's not the paper that matters, it's the handshake, the golf claps, the hugs from your team and the high-fives from your 'competitors'. It's the cheers in the bar after and the hearty applause that you remember for years to come - not a piece of paper.
Besides if people are given the mic they just stand up and say controversial comments on the concept of competitive art and nobody wants that... ;-)
Hearty congrats to not only all the winners this year - but everyone who even tried to make a film, all of us know how bloody hard it is - whether you got cardboard or not.
