Volvo Car Corporation's global in-house magazine Agenda has been awarded twice in the European publishing competition FEIEA Grand Prix 2009.
Agenda Magazine is the winner of the category "Best Front Cover" for issue #1 2009. The cover photo is a manifest of the 50 year anniversary of the safety belt.
This is the jury statement:
"A powerful and very well balanced cover. The child's hand on the seatbelt is a perfect embodiment of the Volvo safety image. The masthead, logo and other elements are in proportion leaving the main image to deliver its message."
In the category "Best internal multi-language publication" Volvo Cars came second.
This year's FEIEA Grand Prix attracted 166 entries from 10 countries across Europe. Some of the companies competing for awards were BASF (Germany), Roche (Switzerland), Crédit Suisse (Switzerland), Unilever PLC (UK), AG Insurance (Belgium) and Siemens (Portugal).
"It is a significant achievement to win an award in the Grand Prix, against strong competition from across Europe," says Lyndsay Markham, Director of the FEIEA Grand Prix.
"Each winning entry has been through a rigorous three-stage judging process, and has been closely analysed and discussed by our pan-European panel of expert judges."
Earlier this year Volvo Car Corporation received the Swedish Publishing Award 2009 for Agenda Magazine as the best in-house magazine in Sweden.
Agenda Magazine is published by Volvo Car Corporation in three languages (Swedish, English and Dutch) and distributed to Volvo employees globally.
