Public Acclaim Award
As is customary, visitors may vote for their favorites again this year, using Public Acclaim ballots. Votes in this category are cast in the author categories, that is, those presenting their works in exhibitions of the National Technical Museum and the Window Gallery of the Česká Spořitelna Bank. There are two rounds of voting. In the first, visitors fill out a ballot in the National Technical Museum and vote for their three best choices. The five nominees receiving the most votes will advance to the second round. This round will also take place in the National Technical Museum, and simultaneously online in the project's website www.czechgranddesign.cz, and websites of media partners.
The first round runs from January 23rd to February 23 rd, 2014. The second from February 25th through March 18 th. The winner of the Public Acclaim category will be announced at the press conference in the exhibition on March 20 th at 11am.
