Gia Saralidze awarded for joint with Vestnik Kavkaza projects
Moscow hosted the ceremony of 16th National Award 'Russia's Media Manager - 2016'. Best managers were awarded in the radio, television, Internet and print media spheres. A creative producer and the host of Vesti FM, Gia Saralidze, was awarded in the 'Social Responsibility Media' category. He was awarded for the 'National Question’ and 'Peoples of Russia' programs, which are implemented jointly with Vestnik Kavkaza on Vesti FM.
The award winner, speaking with a correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza, noted in the first place that 'Russia's Media Manager - 2016'' is a very prestigious award, which is awarded among the electronic and print media, in the sphere of social responsibility of media. "The awarding ceremony is held by people who themselves work in the media business, and the top managers of almost all radio and TV stations are awarded. It is very pleasant and honorable to be in line with Dobrodeev, with the head of Gazprom-Media, Chernyshenko," he pointed out.
In addition, the creative producer pointed out that he was awarded for multiple projects. 'National Question’ and 'Peoples of Russia' programs have been combined into one, because they represent the same theme - the national question, the ethnic composition of the Russian people, their characteristics and culture. The bid committee put forward me due to the promotion of inter-ethnic relations, raising sensitive issues related to national policy and the stories about the peoples of Russia. That is, it is also an educational project," Gia Saralidze concluded.

But the main thing is that due to this award we will see many fresh faces and learn about their achievements and new bright projects," he said.
