Meanwhile, the runner-up was from Slovenia, while a second Ukrainian and a Croat tied for third place.

In addition to the competition, the programme organises an intensive 100-hour Polish-language course and teaches participants about Polish literature, culture, art and history in conjunction with the University of Silesia in the southern Polish city of Katowice.
