The message reads, in part:
“Since its establishment in 1996, the forum has definitely proven its relevance and has been contributing to the development in our country and its regions of modern quality media, to the improvement of information processing standards and strengthening the journalistic profession clout and prestige over many years. Your meetings are always major and meaningful events in the media community and are distinguished by a rich agenda, substantive and interesting communications between their participants.
And, of course, I would like to heartily congratulate the winners of the TEFI-Multimedia award, which is being presented at the forum for the first time today. In times of digital technology, this really unique project has united at the competition platform representatives of all media sectors and areas, including experienced masters and talented young people, aiming at advancing the best traditions of Russian journalism.”
