French artist Claire Bretécher has been honoured with the special award for lifetime achievement – as was announced prior to the award ceremony. She was unable to take part in the award ceremony due to reasons of health.
For security reasons this was also not possible for one of the two awardees of the jury’s special prize: former Charlie Hebdo artist Luz has worked through the pain resulting from the murder of his artist colleagues through the terrorist attack on the editorial board of the satire magazine Charlie Hebdo. Berlin’s avant-verlag was honoured with an additional special jury prize for its services in connection with the preservation and cultivation of cultural heritage.
