On Tuesday evening Rainer Mahlamäki was awarded the Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation's annual prize for his contributions to Finnish culture and education.
Rainer attended a prize ceremony in his honour, being the sole recipient of an extremely prestigious award worth 30,000 euros.
Since the 1950's the foundation has been a huge contributor to cultural causes, including to some of Helsinki's most important galleries and museums, and most prominent cultural figures.
In 2017 Rainer received the Prince Eugen Medal from the King and Queen of Sweden, and earlier this year he was awarded the Helsinki Golden Medal from the city's mayor.
