2005: Wow, Szpilman Award grows!
In 2005 it begins to become a tradition: Szpilman Award's third year! 'Join
now!', press says, and 173 participants adopt the proposal. Thanks to generous
donators the members of the jury are able to meet up for three days in a private
house on the countryside near Berlin. After hard talks the members make the
preselection and agree on the best seven. It takes one day more to single out the
winner: The Szpilman Award goes to Kosovo, Congratulations, Albert Heta!
