The best projects of Russian America in the area of public relations were announced in the USA. The 4th award ceremony of “The Silver Archer – USA”, the Russian national award, took place in Washington, DC on January 30th.


The ceremony took place at the Trade Mission of the Russian Federation in Washington, DC and this is the reason why organizers and award nominees were addressed by head of the Mission Alexander Stadnik. He noted that “history of cooperation between Russia and the USA has experienced its ups and downs a number of times”. Mr. Stadnik mentioned that now “relations between our countries are being challenged again and have reached a level, which is extremely dangerous for global economy and international cooperation”.


Two projects “Russian Economic Forum in New York” and “World Congress of Entrepreneurs in Moscow” were nominated in the Business, Technologies category where new initiatives aiming at extension of business contacts are considered. The award went to organizers of the Forum in New York, which in 2015 will be held with support of the Gorchakov Fund.


Projects in the area of culture and education remain among the most popular ones over the past years. The award in the  Russian School category was given to an organization with the same name from Orange County in California, which in the past 12 years of work had taught over 1000 students. Its competitor for the award was Children’s Academy “All Together” from Chicago.


New Russian Radio, which has been broadcasting in California since 1996, was recognized as the most successful Russian-speaking mass media. Spiritual Diplomacy Foundation of Mikhail Morgulis had no competitors in the Charity category. During the last 2 years the Foundation has forwarded over 1.2 million of US dollars to orphanages for kids with disabilities in Belarus, Russia, Ukraine and Ossetia.


The award in the most prestigious Person category went to president of Russian-American Chamber of Commerce Sergey Millian, who together with his colleagues in 8 years has developed cooperation among Russian and US entrepreneurs, which brought investments of over 500 million US dollars to Russia.


Finally, the special award went to designer Evgenia Luzhina-Salazar from Maryland, the only Russian designer, whose work had been presented at the High Fashion Week in New York. Her models of clothing served as decorations for all the ceremonies of “The Silver Archer – USA” award ceremony 4 years in a row.
