The presentation of an attesting certificate along with $ 4,000 took place on the 14th October at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), held in Chicago (USA). The award winning artist could not attend the ceremony, so the award was received by his representative Dr. Agustín Echague, event coordinator for Uruguay.
