Only one team could win the sponsor's prize for "Best Team Logo", but the judges selected the top two logos for each league A, B, C, D and Fast Track (see List of winners). Congratulations to the winning logos, and special congratulations to our overall winner, the number one team logo -- Alpine-Rookies!"
-- J. Franklin Campbell, ICCF Champions League Webmaster

P.S. The payment of all prizes will be made when either the event is concluded or all prizes are clear as determined by tournament director. Upon day of notification, IPV will set the final value per the net asset value of the fund. This final sum will be paid to ICCF promptly. The ICCF Financial Director with the assistance of the TD will then make all payment arrangements to the team captains and players in a form to minimize currency exchanges and high bank transfer fees which is also most convenient.
