According to Filip Lech of Culture.pl:
The International Opera Awards are presented by Opera Magazine, a periodical that has commented on the events of the opera houses of the world since the 1950s. The statuettes are presented to finalists in a number of categories, including conductors, directors, male and female singers, new productions and rediscovered operas. The Readers’ Award has become increasingly popular – the readers of Opera Magazine can select their favourite male and female opera singers online. This year the award was presented to the Polish soprano Aleksandra Kurzak and the German tenor Jonas Kaufmann.
