The Winners of the Richter Competition (see some of the readers comments here for the usual competition induced contretemp) are:
THE SVIATOSLAV RICHTER PRIZE (1st Place) Eldar NEBOLSIN (Russia)
2nd Prize: shared Yakov KATSNELSON(Russia) and Makoto UENO (Japan)
3rd Prize: Not Awarded
4th Prize: Yung Wook Yoo (Korea) and Vadim Rudenko (Russia)
5th Prize: Ani Takidze (Russia)
6th Prize: Not Awarded.
I find it curious that nobody merited 6th prize. Sigh.
