The list of the 31 nominated films (sorted by the competition numbers) emerged from the first round of evaluation by a five-member international jury (Link below).
In the second round, which will take place during the festival, the jury will decide on the prize winners.

The Jury awards:
• The main prize of the Festival, GRAND PRIX GOLDEN PRAGUE, to the winning programme. This prize includes a financial award of EUR 10.000,-
• Three CZECH CRYSTALS to winning programmes in individual categories
• SPECIAL MENTION for extraordinary artistic achievement

Please note that within the scope of the second round, each juror has the right to propose a "wild card" for one film that didn't make it to the TOP 31. The inclusion of such a film in the second round has to be decided upon by the entire jury. The exercise of this right by a juror is entirely optional.

Even the films that didn't proceed to the second round still have a chance to win some of the other awards.

Additional awards:
• The Director General of Czech TV awards the CZECH TELEVISION PRIZE
• Dagmar and Václav Havel's Foundation VIZE 97 awards their PRIZE. It includes a financial award of CZK 50.000,-
