Hilda Múdra and Svetozár Ilavský (with flowers) at the ceremony.
The awards were started by the late, legendary comedian Július Satinský. The ceremony is usually part of the Bratislava Ball, which this year took place in the Reduta on February 10.
Hilda Múdra was behind the career of Ondrej Nepela, who won the gold medal at the Winter Olympic Games in 1972. She received the Blueberry for lifetime achievment as a coach who promoted Bratislava.
This shiny sculpture of Satinský, who died in 2002, was met with mixed reviews.

Ilavský sculpted the statue of Július Satinský that portrays him listening to the sounds of Dunajská Street in Bratislava, where the comedian lived his whole life. The sculpture was unveiled on September 24, 2006.
