An International Jury, presided over by Vincent Baudriller, Director of Théâtre Vidy in Lausanne, awarded the Prague Quadrennial as one of the 12 of the most trend-setting European festivals of this year from a pool of 760 festivals from 31 countries. The main criteria were Artistic Merit, Innovation, Internationality, Political Value and Sustainability.
The Prague Quadrennial, the largest international festival of theatre and performance design in the world, held every four years in the Czech capital, reported the total attendance of its main locations at 180,000 entries during its 11 days. The festival brought thousands of foreign guests to the city. Accredited professionals, who came from 90 countries and regions, numbered 6,000 alone. From 18 to 28 June, Prague thus stood at the centre of world theatre and performance design, as visitors could take in the latest works by stage and costume designers, architects, and lighting and sound designers from 78 countries – which means 8 more countries than in 2011.
On Monday, 22 June at the Archa Theatre, the awards for the Prague Quadrennial 2015 were presented to this year's winners. The international jury awarded the Golden Triga for best exposition to the Estonian project Unified Estonia. The Gold Medal for Best Exhibition Design went to Belgium, the Netherlands were recognized for Best Curatorial Concept, and Best Performance Design went to the Chinese team.

In addition to the Prague Quadrennials's traditional national and student expositions, this year's festival – held inside several of the city's historical buildings – also presents experimental exhibitions that, each in its own way, combine scenography with everyday urban life.
