Award-winning “32 Shades of Belarusian”

We are sure many of you still remember our video that we made involving partners from 32 countries of the world. We were surprised that people completely unfamiliar with our language and culture were eager to read lines of the poem “Dze moj kraj?” (“Where is my Motherland?”) of the famous Belarusian writer Vladimir Karatkevich. Suprisingly, they did it with style!

Enjoy this stunning multinational video once again:

This project just hit it, going beyond the 25 thousand views on youtube, a bunch of likes and reposts. An idea to apply for participation in “Adnak Advertising and Communication Festival” just came across, becoming a jumping-off place for the recognition of our partners’ great effort.

Despite the fact that a myriad of other projects were nominated, our video confidently reached the top rate, and we were invited to the awards ceremony taking place on July 2nd.

The result came in 2 Certificates both signifying our partners’ great work:

  • 1st place in the “Video for the Internet” nomination;
  • 2nd place in the “Belarusian-oriented and communication project” nomination.

Kate Chaplinskaya, Internet marketing specialist from Gurtam, spoke highly of the vistory: “Our video clearly stood out of all other works. A completely social project in support of the Belarusian native language empowered by over 32 different vioces, worth being heard… Besides, came out as a sort of an advertising campaign for our partners. We were so inspired with such success that promised to come up with another outstanding project again in a short time. So get ready, partners!”
