Who will be the Scandinavian of the Year? And who are the winners of the Scanorama Awards 2004?
This year the Scanorama Awards is presented for the third time in connection with the announcement
of the Scandinavian of the Year. The winners and runners-up are announced on November 25th through
a press-release and at a reception at Volvo Showroom in Stockholm at 5.30 p.m. You are
welcome to cover the event!The award is comprised of the following categories: Business, Culinary, Culture, Design, Entertainment,
Sports, and the honorary mention Scandinavian of the Year, i.e. the Scandinavian who our readers consider
to have been the foremost representative for Scandinavia and has had a great deal of international
attention for his/her achievements during the past year.
The reason for the establishment of the awards is that Scanorama is the only international magazine
that regularly profiles the most exciting, successful and acclaimed Scandinavians. Our ambition is for
the awards to strengthen Scandinavia’s profile and encourage and reward the talented Scandinavians
who work in their native countries or abroad.
The Scandinavian of the Year–prize is designed by Swede Jonas Torstensson, renowned for using
recycled material in his art.
