These theses will be displayed in the Best of the Best Gallery and will receive a certificate of participation in the competition. Making it to the "top ten" of all IT theses from all over the Czech Republic and Slovakia is a great achievement that will enrich your CV.

The final round takes place in the form of presentations in front of the competition judges. The first few places will then receive valuable prizes. The actual award ceremony is presented in the media.
