April 21st, 2017 – The Czech 15th Annual Business Media Publishing “Zlatý středník” ⃰ Awards ceremony was held at Hotel Marriot, Prague on April 20, 2017. 14 Gold Award winners were announced at the gala evening from a total of 16 categories. The winners from each category were selected by an independent jury composed of leading experts in communication, marketing, and PR.
ZOOT Magazine received two awards, right away, with a first place in the Best B2C Magazine and Newspaper category, and second place in the Best Business Magazine in the FMCG and Retail Sector category.
“We’re obviously delighted with the awards because they’re proof that what we’re doing, we’re doing well. Moreover, we do not see ZOOT Magazine as just our marketing tool, where we present our fashion and products, and a place where we build our identity, but also as the place where we can tell the stories we want people to know in our own particular way. And it’s the stories that we enjoy the most!” said Thea Kučerová, the Editor-in-Chief of ZOOT Magazine.
