First Sweden and now Europe. Agenda Magazine has for second year running been voted best Multi-language Publication by winning the FEIEA Grand Prix 2008.
Volvo Car Corporation's global in-house magazine recently won the Swedish Publishing Award 2008 as the nation's best in-house magazine. At a prize ceremony last night in Zürich, it climbed another rung on the awards ladder by winning the FEIEA Grand Prix - voted best publication in the Multi-Language Class for the second year in a row by European organisers FEIEA, Federation of European Business Communicators Associations.

The competition is judged in three rigorous stages: a national round of judging is followed by the semi-finals and finals, both of which are judged by a pan-European jury. The jury is made up of expert representatives from each of FEIEA's federated associations, joined by communication experts from the European Parliament and European Commission.
"All corporate information starts with good internal communication. Winning awards and being gauged against a European benchmark is the best proof of our work. Agenda Magazine is an important culture bearer and a strategic communication channel within the company," says Olle Axelson, Senior Vice President Public Affairs, Volvo Car Corporation.
