Speaking at the award ceremony commenced with a short film themed “Sakip Sabanci and Art”, Melisa Tapan stated the following: “My dear grandfather Sakip Sabanci used to say that Painting, Sculpture, and Traditional Turkish Arts are the rich cultural assets of our country. He thought we should embrace these arts. It is a great honor for us to carry on art awards, which was my grandfather’s will, and to support young artists. My family and I wholeheartedly congratulate those students entitled to receive an award. I would like to also extend my thanks to everyone who played a role in raising these students. I wish this award brings them luck and they have all the best...”

Following the speeches, students graduating with a degree from the “Painting, Sculpture and Traditional Turkish Arts” Departments at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University received their awards. Following the award ceremony, guests were invited by the Sabanci Foundation to tour the The Arts of the Book and Calligraphy Collectionexhibition in Sakip Sabanci Museum.
