Each year, during the festival, a specialized international jury awards the Luk Vincent-award. The award is named after the puppeteer Enzo Van Praet (stage name Luk Vincent) who was for years a member of the international compagnie "Theater Taptoe" (Be). The award is given by the family Van Praet to the memory of Enzo. It is an original piece of artwork. Since some years the family Van Praet also offers a second award, the Luk Vincent-award Young Talent.
The jury of this year had 7 members: Guido Desimpelaere (musician and composer of music for puppettheatres), Béa Migom (free-lance journalist and expert in Figures Theatre), Hilde Heijnen (actrice), Alain Verhelst (puppet maker and member of "het Draadpoppen-theater" Roeselaere), Bart Beys (puppeteer and until recently associated with Theater Taptoe), Vahur Keller (artistic director of the "Nukutheater", Talinn) and Donald Hendrickx (Lecturer Hogeschool Gent).

marionette made by Marga Carbonell member of "Compañia La Canija"
The jury was impressed by the inventiveness of this group, the drive of the performance and the love for puppettheater. The beautifull selfmade puppets, the creative use of the scene, the original story and the incredible swiftness of the production make sure that this groupe is a worthy winner of the festival.
The Award LuK Vincent 2012 for Young Talent is granted to LE PROJET D from France with their production "CARBONE"
LUK VINCENT AWARD 2012
marionette made by Drolatic Industry
The jury, and we are convinced the public also, were very impressed by the high quality level of this festival.
After a long deliberation the jury came to four nominees:
Trulé from Portugal with the production Amores e Humores Bonecadas
La Mandale from France with the production Citizen P
Drolatic Industry from France with the production Humpty Dumpty
Anonima Teatro from France with the production La Route.
The jury witnessed a high level acting performance and manipulation of the puppets in a perfect ensemble working. The story was brilliant and surprising with sharp and funny interventions on different levels, and in a swift tempo. The performance has a high Punch & Judy and commedia dell’arte spirit.
For this reasons the Luk Vincent Award 2012 is granted to LA MANDALE from France with their production "CITIZEN P."
