In the crowded hall of the Serbian Army Club the awards were traditionally presented to successful individuals, institutions and sport clubs in fields of local governance, economy, health, culture and sports.

At the ceremony special awards were presented that symbolize successful efforts by citizens of Pirot and individuals and institutions in Serbia and abroad, whose work, results and activities brought common good to the city and citizens of Pirot and contributed to the city's faster development.

A recognition STEP FORWARD was awarded to Sasa Mirkovic, former president of ANEM, for his personal contribution and all the results that this Association has accomplished in media development, but also for its relentless struggle for the rights of media, their status and position, as well as for the adoption of media laws.
