The award and the symbolic cheque, which President Václav Havel donated to the VIZE 97 Foundation, was presented by the Chairman and Manager of the Charter Foundation, František Janouch.

The award-winning eighth volume contains more than eight hundred pages and it is published by the Torst publishing house.
