We hope that this donation will make her work easier and we believe that her new projects will bring a number of further international recognitions to the Croatian Short Film Animated Film. "
Expressing gratitude for the support, Irena Jukić Pranjic said: "Although not officially called a prize, this donation is really a nice recognition for my work, and somehow will most contribute to my further activities. Tools for artists are more than objects, they often open up new opportunities for style development, provide creative solutions that lead to new ideas. When we compare the techniques and materials of animation with someone who works in stone, we could say that I got the whole stonepit for the gift. "
