NLMK Magazine has scooped an award at the 11th Annual Russian National Corporate Media Awards 2014. The competition was held as part of the 11th Annual Conference on ‘The role of communications and corporate media in a company’s strategic management’ and sponsored by the Russian Association of Communications and Corporate Media Directors.

NLMK Group’s company magazine, which has been published since 2005, was the winner in the ‘Best holding company magazine’ category.

There were 146 entrants in the competition.
