Dear ladies and Gentlemen – Our Readers with Diplomatic Status, We are all tired of myriad awards and ceremonies that are going around ubiquitously and on permanent basis. Our mail boxes are simply inundated with all kinds of invitations to the events we are not likely to be interested in. But the one that your favorite Georgian Journal is suggesting is a totally and absolutely different case.

The Georgian Journal and the MediaPalitra Publishing House have embarked on a project of great significance in the Georgia media – ‘Diplomat of the Year’ which is going to be held in December of 2011 to establish a new annual tradition. A grandiose ceremony is in store for all of us, but before this outstanding event, polls have been conducted, involving local politicians, political analysts and political scientists as well as the cross section of Georgian society. Accordingly, the candidates have been elicited and their names were put forward for discussions and considerations. Several additional exclusive nominations are

also envisaged for granting the awards. The final event will reveal the winners, and the main participants are going to be the Ambassadors of various nations, accredited in Georgia and other members of the Diplomatic Corps. You will also see among our honorable guests the representatives of international organizations, foreign politicians, experts, businessmen and journalists.

The primary purpose of the event is giving a more powerful impetus to the activity of the Diplomatic Corps in Georgia for promoting further development of democracy and welfare in this country. Moreover, we intend to revitalize the creative interactions between the Georgian media and the Diplomatic Corps.
