The ceremony takes place on Tuesday, 24 February, at the residence of the ambassador of France in Vilnius.

The Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis Foundation in cooperation with foreign embassies in Lithuania has honoured deserving people from Lithuania and abroad for years. It is also an opportunity to remind to the world about Lithuania's talented artist and composer Čiurlionis.

This year the award will be granted to Honorary Consul of France in Klaipėda Olivier Criou, businessman Juozas Kabašinskas and founders of the publishing house Zara, Ramutė Žandarienė and Aidas Žandaris.
