Congratulations to all the winners.
Unfortunately, it seems as if the ceremony itself was rather lacklustre, at least according to one of the finalists.
They tend to be; I better didn’t go (and haven’t heard anything, but also didn’t ask).
Mike, if File770 still can’t handle European diacritics, surely it would be better to show the Work for Children as Swiat rather than the mirror-universe evil twin ?wiat.
Also, should anyone like to know more about the winners, the nominee listing available from https://www.esfs.info/esfs-nominations-2022/ had links.
I agree; change made.
