The Jury awarded the following prizes:

THE GRAND PRIZE: 
Alberto Dávila Quesada, Mexico.
Sponsored by the Mayor of the City of Gdańsk PLN 10,000.
A daring interpretation of the competition subject in the form of a mouthpiece instead of a classic piece of jewellery, such as a ring or pendant. A symbolic piece, it refers to the main topic of Kairos and carries a meaning related to the material, highlighting the beauty of amber.

THE AMBER PRIZE:
Martin Radt, Germany.
Sponsored by the International Amber Association 1 kg of amber.
A moment of brutality and surrealism; the piercing of a piece of amber with a safety pin, where we cannot open the safety pin which also makes it a hidden kinetic moment. 

THE SILVER PRIZE:
Laurent Brune
, Germany.
1 kg of silver.
Reveals the different colours and different possibilities of amber. Good quality and goldsmithery in the connection between the very different materials: metal and amber.


The Jury decided to award one Honorary Mention: 
Wenzho Lin, China.
Very poetic idea where a fly, normally captured in a piece of amber is now captured on film. A connection between the past and the future.
