The awards ceremony, in the presence of the Italian Ambassador, Roberto Palmieri, was held during the annual Khatulistiwa Literary Award, the most important Indonesian literary award. An Indonesian jury selected a list of seven novels from those published last year in the south-east Asian country. The mixed Italian and Indonesian jury of Metropoli d'Asia then chose the winner, who signed a contract for the acquisition of worldwide rights with  Md’A.
