I take this opportunity through this Editorial Letter to congratulate all the candidates of the 2018 Travel Award competition organized by the IJFS. I would also like to take this opportunity to explain that for the Committee
that reached the final decision, all participants were characterized by high qualifications, while the merit of their work, as well as the scientific conference they were planning to participate, had been beyond any doubt.
Congratulations to the successful candidate, but also thanks must go to everyone who stood. It takes courage and commitment to put oneself forward for evaluation and the possibility of not winning. The reward of
your hard work will be a career full of opportunities.
As far as the winner of this competition is concerned, Dr. Hye-Jin Cho of University of Paris 1 - Panthéon Sorbonne, please accept the Committee’s, all Members’ of the Editorial Board and the Publisher’s sincere
congratulations on your success and may this small token of contribution from our side can significantly assist you to accomplish all of your career’s goals.
