Krasnodar, 2 July. The Grand Prix and the prizewinners of the annual Triumph Contest were announced in Krasnodar last Friday.
The competition was initiated five years ago by The Yug Times weekly with support of the regional Civic Chamber.
The competition is open for professionals who made great progress in various spheres: science and education, medicine and arts, business and management.
The contest is accompanied by the media project headed “Triumph as a Story of Success” – over a year, while the jury is choosing the finalists, our weekly publishes articles about the career, aspirations and values declared by the nominees. This is how one of the main goals of the competition – creation and promotion of the image of best personalities in their respective sector – is being achieved, Oleg Zharko, Chairman of the Jury Panel, Danone Russia Corporate Director and Chairman of the Southern Regional Committee of the Association of European Business, said.
“The jury panel had many selection criteria. Mostly, we analyzed how the nominees were showing their worth in the public and social life of their city and region, what achievements they reached and what was the person’s recognizability level. The final decision was taken by these and some other factors. However, it was hard to do it in every nomination, because all contestants were worthy of their steel,” Ralph Bendisch, 2019 Triumph Gran Prix winner and member of the jury, explained.
This time, it was especially difficult to make a decision, because the jury had to nominate the winners of the past two years – in 2020, the Triumph contest had not been held due to the COVID-10 constraints. In total, the jury reviewed about 150 nominees and selected 37 finalists for 13 nominations. Some finalists had been chosen unanimously, but more frequently the winner had been determined by a majority vote. The judges confessed that it had been most difficult to elect the Grand Prix winner. It was really hard to choose somebody from the list of deserving professionals whose achievements were widely acknowledged in the Kuban region and known to broad public.
All prizewinners received presents from the partners of the ceremony. The two Grand Prix winners (for 2020 and 2021) received open-date flight certificates from the Turkish Airlines. And, traditionally, The Yug Times weekly gave them a branded watch.
