Jotvingiai prize

   Jotvingiai prize is the principal award of the Druskininkai Poetic Fall. It was established by Sigitas Geda in 1985. It is given for the best book or publication during the year by a committee comprised of all those living in Lithuania who had received the prize, and it is awarded by the Druskininkai town council and, since 1998, by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture. 
   In Soviet times the 10 ruble prize, against the backdrop of official awards, was a pleasant sign of recognition to those who could not even dream of favours from Soviet State.
  In 1990 Sigitas Geda agreed to link Jotvingiai prize with Druskininkai Poetic Fall.
