The 3rd Social and Business Award’ Star of the Far East’ will be a part of the ‘Days of the Far East in Moscow’ Festival in December 2019.
At the Eastern Economic Forum, Yan Khanov, Managing Partner of the Publicity Communications Agency, a representative of the Award operator, reported that the Award’s format has expanded. All 11 regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, as well as foreign investors, are to participate in it.
The event has been held since 2017 and is a part of the annual ‘Days of the Far East in Moscow’ Festival. According to Deputy Prime Minister – Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev, the Award incentivizes the best employers, investors, and recipients of the ‘Far Eastern Hectare’. ‘The joint efforts of the federal authorities, regions, business community and media representatives stand behind all the achievements in the socio-economic transformation of the East of the country,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
Over the two years of the ‘Star of the Far East’ Award, 48 laureates representing the business, community and the media have been identified and have already received honorary recognition for their contribution to the development of the Far East. The Award’s objective is to present the Far East as a ‘territory of growth’ and a national priority in the overall development of Russia. “We need to talk about the Far East, prove that this beautiful and unique region is not that far away, and the life here is exciting. All the investment projects being implemented here yield a chance to turn the course of one’s life,” said Yury Trutnev.
The new format of the contest implies two rounds for shortlisting the nominees. At the regional stage, each region of the Far Eastern Federal District is to nominate its candidates through the local organizing committees. However, anybody interested can nominate themselves by submitting an independent application on the Award’s website. Just like in previous years, the federal jury consisting of renowned experts, educators, representatives of cultural and media communities are to shortlist the finalists. The application can be submitted through the official website премия-звезда.рф.
The regional stage is to identify 99 semi-finalists, the ‘Golden Hundred’ of high-potential leaders of the Far Eastern development. Three finalists in each nomination will be invited to Moscow to participate in the award ceremony. The names of the winners in each nomination will be announced during the ceremony in Moscow.
