    Default the first time ever

    He won, for the first time ever, f the Film festival

    Is it fine to say for the first time ever to mean that this is the fist victory of the Festivale in his career?

    thanks

    It might become clearer if you turn around your sentence a bit and say:

    It was the first time ever that he won at the Film Festival.

    Thanks.
    Is it fine, since I have to put the year, to say.

    In 1999, for the first time ever, he won ......? Or In 1999 he won for the first time ever, the Festival.....

    Thanks
