Bulgaria's largest English-language media Novinite.com (Sofia News Agency) our Bulgarian-language service Novinite.bg and the Russian-language Novinite.com invite you, our readers from around the world, to select Bulgaria's "Personalities in the News" for 2014!
Novinite's team has nominated three people in each of the six categories this year: Politics; Business; Diplomacy; Culture; Sports; and Charity, with a few of the names coinciding with those of nominees from the 2013 poll.
Each reader vote will be equally important in determining who will be the winner in the respective category.
Last year's winners included Irina Bokova, UNESCO's first female Secretary General (Politcs); ABB country manager Ekkehard Neureither and Walltopia founder Ivaylo Penchev (tied in Business); Japan's Ambassador to Sofia Takashi Koizumi (Diplomacy); top tennis player Grigor Dimitrov (Sports); violinist Vesko Eschkenazy (Culture); and Dobri Dobrev, known as "the Elder Dobri" (Charity).
Voting will continue until mid-February 2015. Within this time we will take special care to present and promote equally all the nominees through interviews and articles.
The winners will be announced and awarded at a special ceremony in March which has already turned into a traditional and cherished event among expats, diplomats and businessmen in Bulgaria and around the world.
